Be sill and know that I am God

                    Psalm 46:10

Silent periods between prayers are a privilege and a blessing. Don’t panic when there’s a lull—just listen! Prayer is a two-way conversation with God.

Today silence is almost a lost art. After a few seconds pass without audible prayer, someone usually feels compelled to clear her throat, shuffle her feet, or nervously finger a songbook. Somehow, we think we must talk at God all the time, but there are marvelous things God wants to say to us, He has answers to our questions, secrets He wants to share and yet we bombard Him with our “much praying”. We forget that God is on His throne in heaven just waiting to say something great to us, if we would only give Him a chance. He has something so wonderful to tell you and me, and we aren’t quiet long enough to listen to what He has to say.

Have we learned to keep still long enough for God to say something to us? It is in the silence that our communication becomes two-way.



Dear Father, teach me to listen to Your voice in the silence.
