Pause + Pray

Make Space for Peace

young woman reflecting


Our world is full of noise. It’s often rare to find space for peace, and making time to sit and be still can seem countercultural to what we are told to do daily. It is in the moments when we allow ourselves to be still that we can encounter a peace that is life-giving.


God of peace, may you help us create spaces where we can be still—
spaces where we can catch our breath,
spaces where we can reconnect.
In a world full of noise, may you draw our hearts closer to your peace,
and remind us that we, too, can live lives marked by peace.
May we become bearers and makers of peace.


Take 10 minutes every day this week to create a space where you can be still. Whether that is in your car, your room, or on a walk—take 10 minutes to simply be and ask for one thing: peace.
