Day 132

Today’s Reading – Psalms 65-67 and 69-70

Silence is praise to you, Zion-dwelling God, And also obedience.
You hear the prayer in it all.
Psalm 65:1-2 The Message
Ever been at a loss for words?
Ever been at a loss for what to pray?
It has been said that “silence is golden” and here is possible proof.
God will not be deceived by your flowery words of praise.

In those moments when we do not what to pray, we need to heed this reminder and go before God with our silence.

God will understand and hear the message of our silence.

We need to remain obedient in our faith.

And in so doing our faith calls us into relationship with God.

Remember, sometimes the silence between two friends sitting together for an extended period of time can speak more than any words could ever say about the relationship.

Perhaps your relationship with God could use a little silence.


I am a United Methodist Pastor and have the privilege of serving as the Senior Pastor for the church of my childhood. I preach in a place I once was an acolyte. I love to preach, but more importantly I love to teach. I firmly believe that Faith Matters and should affect how we live. This blog is a place where I come to share the randomness that is life and faith ... and the intersection of the two.
