Overwhelming Prayer

Into your Presence
A treasure this day
So many options
Which way to pray?

Prayers of petition
Or one from your Word
A devotional book
Or praises be spurred

Words of the soul
Flow infinitely
The choices beyond
Overwhelming me

Infinite options
As Spirit surrounds
So overwhelming
As choices abound

It’s a glorious gift
Of simplicity
As maybe the best
Is for us, just to be

3 thoughts on “Overwhelming Prayer”

  1. The last stanza brought to mind a book about “listening prayer.” My daughter obtained it from a missionary who spoke at chapel while she attended Bible college.

    The gist of the teaching is believers often spend time in prayer as a monologue rather than a dialogue. If prayer is communication with our Lord we must become comfortable with some silence and listen to Him speak rather than prattle on.

    Thanks for this beautiful piece.
