For God Alone My Soul in Silence Waits

Text: Psalm 62

Reflection and Question: This is such a wonderful expression of rock-solid trust in God. Every believer in God in Christ can take up this fervent prayer. The psalmist touches upon the division between the rich and the poor, who both can clothe themselves in the faith of this psalm. The vast array of opponents, across so many divides in the church, are able to find the words for their heartfelt yearnings in this poetry. Can you hear the voices of your opponents even as they, too, lift this prayer to God?

Prayer: For God alone my soul waits in silence, for my hope is in God. God alone is my rock and my salvation, my fortress; I shall not be shaken. On God rests my deliverance and my honor; my mighty rock, my refuge is in God. Amen.

This meditation is based on the Daily Lectionary Year 1 from the Book of Common Worship for the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) (1993).
