There come times
when I have nothing more to tell God.

If I were to continue to pray in words,
I would have to repeat what I have already said.

At such times it is wonderful to say to God,
"May I be in Thy presence, Lord?

I have nothing more to say to Thee,
but I do love to be in Thy presence.”

— Ole Hallesby
Norwegian Lutheran pietist, born August 5, 1879
