Quieting

This quieting is the letting go of structures, the letting go of techniques, the letting go of all the ways that we attempt to control the situation, all of the ways we try to manipulate God. That’s the type of quieting that needs to happen here: quieting my instinct to control things; quieting my desire for the familiar, my desire to always trod the familiar paths and not to risk the unknown. ~ Thomas Green, Experiencing God

How do you let go in prayer?

Let us pray

“Enable us to carry out from this place peace and strength that here we gain. Because we have talked with You here, may we be able to work more patiently for Your kingdom, bringing light upon the problems that perplex the world, dispelling the night of doubt and fear with Your sheltering love.” ~ from Meditations of the Heart

Just feel

“If I really wanted to pray I’ll tell you what I’d do. I’d go out into a great big field all alone or in the deep, deep woods and I’d look up into the sky —up—up—up—into that lovely blue sky that looks as if there was no end to its blueness. And then I’d just feel a prayer. ~ L.M.Montgomery, Anne of Green Gables

Where do you feel prayer?

Prayer

“For me, prayer is a surge of the heart; it is a simple look turned toward heaven, it is a cry of recognition and of love, embracing both trial and joy.” ~ St. Therese of Lisieux

What is prayer for you?

Well water

In desert times we need to know where to find water, which rock to strike for it to pour forth, where to dig deep, or when to wait for the rain to come.

How do you dip into the well?
