Lord, Listen

Wisdom is the reward you get for a lifetime of listening when you’d have preferred to talk. 
                                        ~Doug Larson
 
Brothers and sisters, if someone is caught in a sin, you who live by the Spirit should restore that person gently. But watch yourselves, or you also may be tempted.
                                        ~ Galatians 6:1
 
Lord, Listen To Your Children Praying – Ken Medema
 
A Prayer for the Listener
 
The air is rife with effluvium
it hangs over us like 
an August day at the dump.
Lord, help us to listen,
to you first, second and third.
 
Help our prayers to rise
as a pleasant savor in your nostrils.
Help us to listen again, and to hold
our tongues until you give us the words.
Let us speak peace, let us speak truth,
Let us hear your direction to cease
and heed it well.
 
Grant us wisdom, 
Grant us courage,
for the living of these days.
For the living of these days.
Because of Him,
Linda
