…that which holds all things together knows every word that is said.
Wisdom 1: 7
Before ever a word is on my tongue,
you know it, O Lord, through and through…
Too wonderful for me, this knowledge,
too high, beyond my reach.
Psalm 139: 4, 6
. . .
I spend a lot of time thinking about what to say. Maybe I really should spend more time praying. The one who holds all things together (which Colossians 1: 7 echoes) holds all my words already, and knows what I ought to say.
St Martin, pray for us.
