Pause + Pray

The Pause That Refreshes

Reflect

The Psalmist says, “Be still and know that I am God!” (Ps 46:10). A variation of the Psalmist’s wisdom is: “Pause awhile and know that I am God.” We needwith St. Francis of Assisito rejoice in Brother and Sister deer, firefly, cardinal, and morning sun.


Pray

Teach me, God of All Creation,
t
o pause and notice,
to be changed by what I observe,
to feel kinship with all creatures,

and let the wonder of your world inspire,
delight, and enliven me.

Let my kinship with all life
challenge me to protect the vulnerable—
human and nonhuman—a
nd speak for the voiceless.


Act

Pause throughout the day to notice beauty all around you. Let each moment be an epiphany.
