Pray this month


Lord, so often I ask you how I can know you more deeply, to see and hear you more clearly.


But I’m aware that my days can be so hectic, with my focus on a million different things, that it’s hard for your messages to get through.


I do know that you long to converse with me too.


Please help me to slow down and not to be afraid of the quiet.


It can seem so alien to me, but I do want to still my heart and mind.


I want to be able to hear your voice and know the discernment of your Spirit in my life each and every day.


So today I choose to pause.


And I determine in my heart to make you the focus of my day. Amen.
