God of the Low Whisper

A prayer written on behalf of a dear friend of mine, whose walk with the Lord is remarkable:
He leads me beside quiet waters. Ps 23:2
O God, You are the God of the Low Whisper. Save me, O God, for the waters have threatened my life. I have sunk in deep mire, and there is no foothold; I have come into deep waters, and a flood overflows me. I am weary with my crying; my throat is parched. I need You, O God, to come to my rescue. Right now, my days are chaotic and out of control. My strength is nearly gone. My courage is next to nothing. I have no idea how to handle the days ahead. O Lord, keep me attentive to Your voice in the midst of this storm. Help me to hear and embrace the sound of Your low whisper. Let me rise above the clamor and hear You say to my heart, “Come to Me. Listen, that you may live.” Yes God, Your whisper is full of hope. You say with compassion, “Do not be afraid”… “I will give you rest”… “I know the plans I have for you”… “I am the good shepherd”…”Come, follow Me”.  O dear Lord, Your tender voice calms me; Your quiet words soothe me. Keep me attentive, for Your low whisper is my delight. Yes, You calm the storm within me while it continues to rage about. Thank You, Gentle One, for firmly steadying my soul.
