Wednesday’s Prayer

As I get my heart ready for Prayer Meeting tonight I cannot get this song, “My Wordless Prayer” by Craig Courtney out of my head. I hope you allow the beauty of the words to reach deep into your soul and drive you to spend time in the throne room of God today during your quiet time and during your Prayer Meeting.

My Wordless Prayer

My words lie still and lifeless as dust upon the sand, I can no longer voice one request or one demand. My cup of tears is empty, I can no longer cry, my lips have fallen silent, my prayer is but a sigh. Spirit,  come and rest Your ear upon my heart, O come and hear my wordless prayer, my silent plea and take them far away from me. Take them from this ear of mine to the Father’s heart divine. Speak in tones unknown to man that God may hear and understand. My voice is weak from calling to You both night and day. How long will You be silent? Why do You turn away?

Spirit, come and rest Your ear upon my heart, O come and hear my wordless prayer, my silent plea and take them far away from me. Take them from this ear of mine to the Father’s heart divine. Speak in tones unknown to man that God may hear and understand.

One response to “Wednesday’s Prayer

  1. This makes me think of that line in Shakespeare’s Hamlet: “My words fly up, my thoughts remain below. Words without thoughts never to heaven go.” I often feel unable to pray, while being desperately aware of the need to do so.
