“O Let Me Hear Thee Speaking” Prayer

The third verse of “O Jesus I have Promised” is a wonderful prayer to use when asking God to speak to us.  The words to this hymn were written by John E.Bode (1816-1874)

O let me hear thee speaking

in accents clear and still,

above the storms of passion,

the murmurs of self-will.

O speak to reassure me,

to hasten or control;

O speak, and make me listen,

thou guardian of my soul.
