“Father forgive them, for they know not what they do.”
I heard that, Homey.
Presence does not always require words. St. Francis is reputed to have said, “Always be prepared to preach the Gospel; when necessary, use words.
Prayer is so simple,
It is like quietly opening a door
And slipping into the very presence of God.
There in the stillness
To listen to his voice;
Perhaps to petition,
Or only to listen;
It matters not.
Just to be there
In his Presence
Steve, do you mean you heard it personally, audibly?
When I’m hurting, how is silence “perfect?” I listen in order to connect with God. To be comforted…
Nowadays, “full silence” seems cold and distant, not loving…
@Doug, just sit and “feel” his presence. Sometimes his loving arms are holding your right there and none of his words are needed. In silence you and God sit, your head on his chest. In this silence is that he comforts you.
@H., I know presence and I know absence. But thanks for the kind notion.
