in our silence

In our silence, God, we pray,
trusting
You to hear
what we could say,
and what we can’t—
what we would know to say,
and what we wouldn’t.

In our silence, God
we affirm that
You know us,
for You are,
we claim,
with us, always.

In our silence, God,
and so often in Yours,
we have faith
that silence is not absence,

and so in the fullness of that silence,
may we hear You too,
and know You
in, we believe,
Jesus’ name.
Amen.
