Prayer: The Evidence of Things Not Seen

As the Queen of Sheba stood amazed before the wisdom of King Solomon

And had all her questions answered to the point that there was no breath left in her,

So I come and stand before You, Lord God Almighty, and keep silence before You,

The Ground of all Being, the Glorious Source of all wisdom and knowledge.

May I serve You in the new way of the Spirit.

Let the earth be filled with the knowledge of the glory of the Lord as the waters cover the sea.

I await the appointed time of this vision; though it tarries, I wait expectantly.

Teach me to live expectantly for these things not yet seen.

I place my hope in You, my Glorious Source.

2 Chronicles 9.4, 24; Habakkuk 2.3-4, 14, 20; Romans 7.6
