Pause + Pray

A Soundless Space


The joyful season of Christmas is often so stressful that it can rob us, ironically, of our joy. This prayer can be a simple way to unplug from the chaos and recharge our spirits.


Like the silent snow
that blankets the world around me,
my heart, too, longs for the quiet
to listen
to your voice, O God.

As we await the birth of your Son,
I want to extract myself
from the noise that hurts,
and seek the quiet that heals.
For in that soundless space
I know that grace awaits me.



Share this prayer with someone whose loneliness worsens during the holidays. Remind them that grace is never far from a wounded spirit.

Faith and Family
