Embrace the Quiet

We are surrounded by so much noise on a daily basis. Some of it is unavoidable, some of it is self-imposed. At times, it’s almost as if we’re afraid of the quiet, afraid of sitting alone with ourselves without some sort of distraction.


Lord, help us rediscover
the beauty of stillness and quiet.
Remind us that sometimes when
we shut out the noise
and sit with ourselves and our thoughts,
we can discover great beauty.
Inspire us to go inward and remember
that silence and all that we can find in
it is a gift and a blessing.


Sit in silence for five minutes and focus on your breathing.
