40 Ways to Pray – Silence

Day 29 – Pray in Silence

First of all it is difficult to find a place that is truly silent – but I think we all can find that time and place.  For some I know it can be difficult.  Others it may not be a challenge at all.

But find a time and place to just get alone with God.  In silence.

Today’s world is full of noise.  Radio, TV, dogs, cars, planes, birds, kids, parents and clocks all make a noise that can and will distract us.

How many worship services have you been in lately at church and the service had some quiet time?  We usually have to have some kind of music to fill the empty space, but what if there is not any.  Do you get uncomfortable?  Why?

I believe we need to find time to get alone with God in silence for 10 minutes, 30 minutes, an hour or even two.  Our minds are so conditioned to have constant input that it takes a while to adjust and be comfortable with no audible input.

But when we do get that time God is able to speak in volumes to us.  He will speak in that still small voice that we know, because we are His sheep – we know His voice.

When was the last time you sat in silence to listen to God?  Have you ever just sat and listened to God?  If not, you are missing a true blessing in this life.

My Prayer for Today

In the silence of the time I have today please speak to me in a still small voice that I know and will obey.  In the name of Jesus I pray.
