A Prayer to Know God in Stillness

“Since then, no prophet has risen in Israel like Moses, whom the Lord knew face to face.” (Deuteronomy 34:10)

“Inner silence is absence of any sort of inward stirring or emotion or thought, but it is complete alertness, openness to God.” – Anthony Bloom

Lord Jesus Christ, Son of God,
have mercy on me, a sinner.
In my agitated being
bring wholeness and comprehensive peace.

Still the windswept ripplings on the surface,
as well as the deeper, unseen churnings below,
so that—healed, whole, quiet, and still—
my soul might reflect Your glory and unity of being.

Grace me to walk from this hour in that way,
that all I meet might encounter You in me
and that, even in the harried hours before me,
I might always return to the stillness found in You.
