Come to the quiet place where God can speak to you.
A Quiet Place
Lead me to the quietness of Your great heart;
Through the path of brokenness, let me have a part
Of knowing You more quietly, more deeply and alone;
And when my soul has found that place,
Then lead me to Your throne.
Still my ceaseless wandering and teach me to abide.
In the shelter of Your love, all fear is cast aside.
Stress and doubt, uncertainty, all fall along the way;
My heart is tuned to sovereign voice;
Lord, speak to me today.
Be still and know that I Am God,
The Bread of Life, the Door,
The Prince of Peace, the Mighty God,
Your Counselor, and more.
Holy, Righteous, Just am I, demanding price for sin;
Then offering My beloved Son, that you may enter in.
If you believe His blood is all that your poor soul could plead,
Just rest serenely in My care; I'm all you'll ever need.
I'm asking something different for this prayer-poem.
If in reading it you are strangely stirred, then make this comment space your altar of prayer, where you open your heart
to the Savior of mankind, the King of Kings,
and invite Him to reveal Himself to you.
For some of you, He will speak a message you have heard before, calling you to finally yield to His love and receive His forgiveness, once and for all.
For others, you know His voice; He is your Shepherd. Listen as He speaks in the quietness words meant just for you, His child.
This time I ask that you make no comments about the poem, but direct your comments to the one and only Jehovah God as you respond to Him. He needs no written words, only your seeking heart.

|"You, my child, have heard My voice, and has surrendered your all to Me. Rest assured, that in My hands, I'm all you'll ever need. So listen well, My Little One, there're others who need to hear My voice. I'm sending you with My staff...seek them out and gentle bring them home."
Thank you for this opportunity, Connie!
Ih His Glorious Name!
Love and Hugs,

doing good to them." (Jeremiah 32:40)

|Thank you Connie. Both your poem and your request for the comment space are absolutely beautiful. I was raised in the church by hard working textile worker parents. Unfortunately, God and I became distant over the years which was my fault of course. I was re-born into the faith about 6 years ago and I thank God every day for allowing this old fool a second chance. I can't wait to check out more of your work. Thanks again, have a wonderful day and God bless. Paul|

I pray that now that YOU have revealed to me my crying heart's prayer, YOU strengthen me to move forward with patience and YOUR guidance and trusting only YOU and not my flesh. In Jesus' name I pray and give all thanks to Connie who was YOUR vehicle on this day that YOU rose to set me free! AMEN! Amen, Amen!

|Beautiful and harmwarming work Connie,
I must admit that I am not a great believer in religeon, however I do believe in God, and speak to him quite a lot these days, I believe that religeons on the whole are made man structures to controll the masses, and I find it hard to beleive that God himself, with his great and generous heart would sanction most of them or what they do supposedly in his name.
Thank you for sharing this beautiful prayer poem,

|We all need and deserve that quiet place, my quiet place is usually in the early a.m. hours before anyone rises here. I can sit and meditate and pray and ask the Lord to help me to live the life that he intended...but the other quiet place is when he whispers in our heart with a still small voice that all will be alright.
Blessings for such a wonderful write,
