Sometimes, Father, sometimes the silence deafens. My ears hear nothing but my heart beating in solitude as I wait. You have never not answered my request to come into your presence. You have never turned me away or not had time for my longing heart. Your heart is my refuge. Your Word is my solid rock. Your steadfast love never fails. I thank you in the precious name and powerful authority of Jesus, according to your good and perfect will. Amen.

“For God alone my soul waits in silence; from him comes my salvation. He alone is my rock and my salvation, my fortress; I shall not be greatly shaken.” (Psalm 62: 1-2 ESV)
