Here’s a prayer of invocation and petition from My Redeemer Lives website.
(inspired by 1 Kings 19: 8-15, Psalm 46: 10)
O God of the still, small voice,
quiet our inner spirit.
Help us to focus upon You, and You alone,
to hear Your voice within.
There are so many other voices demanding our attention.
But we cannot attend to them without You....
Be still and know that I am God,
You say to us as You said to Elijah....
May Your voice speak through us.
In weakness, be our strength.
In poverty, be our wealth.
In depression, be our joy.
In apathy, be our love.
We cannot sing Love's song, O Lord,
unless it be Your voice singing in us.
Take this heart, and with this mouth
make Your praise and thanksgiving a reality here and now.
Because of, and in the name of our Messiah, Jesus. Amen.
