<Weekly Reflection-Prayer Poetry>
Spend a full day in quietness. Sundays are great days to do that. Set aside at least part of the afternoon to be completely quiet. Meditation is a lost art in this modern , hurry-up world. I suggest you revive it. Not by endlessly repeating some mantra to get into some other frame of mind. Not that. Simply and silently wait before your faithful God. Read a passage of Scripture, perhaps psalm and let it speak. Say nothing, Just sit silently. Let Him talk. Let Him reassure you that you are fully and completely forgiven and that your shame is gone. Feel His arms reach around you…Feel again the freshness and relief of His presence.
We admit that we struggle to be still and quiet.
We throw out complaints, rush on with our day.
Help us to prepare ourselves to hear you speak.
Teach us to silently meditate, listen as we seek.
Help us to believe that we will now hear you-
and ready our hearts to hear you speak to us too.
