We sometimes ask for our needs with an insistent and frenzied energy. When we do, the silences or pauses that God might use to breathe in us will be filled up. We may lose precious opportunities to examine what God has given, has revealed, has opened to us.
– Br. Keith Nelson, SSJE
A practice for your day:
Rather than lifting your needs in prayer today, listen for God. Breathe in; still your heart; and listen. If you find yourself becoming distracted, return to your breath.
