Waiting for God

This prayer-a-phrased poem from today’s Daily Bible Reading in the Psalms gives a glimpse of the Psalmist’s prayer stance as he awaited a response from God:

Psalm 62:1-2

For God alone
in silence waits
my soul.
From Him alone
in strength waits
my salvation.
My Rock! My Fortress!
I shall not be moved.
In God alone
my soul shall not be shaken.
