A Second Week of Prayer~A Prayer to Listen

God shapes the world by prayer. The more prayer there is in the world, the better the world will be, the mightier the forces against evil.
~E.M. Bounds

A Prayer for Listening

As I sit in quiet surrounded by Your blessings, please teach me how to “be still.” Please let me breathe deeply into stillness. I know You are God, please teach me the “be still” part. As I stop my monologues to You this day, may a sit in stillness and listen for Your still and reassuring voice. Please let me recognize your voice, above the noise of life. Please let me be as the sheep Jesus described in John 10:27, “My sheep listen to my voice; I know them, and they follow me.” In Jesus’ name, amen.
