From the Quiet25 Course, this prayer can be used for opening and closing your quiet time.
(To be read slowly and intentionally)
In our looking, our seeing, our awareness.
Silence in our hearing and listening.
Silence in our searching, striving, and forbearance:
The stillness of God in all reasoning and understanding.
There may we find, refuge from sorrows and trials;
Strength for challenge of day and loneliness of night;
Protection in moments of danger;
Peace in the wonder of creation.
God, be the source of our strength, the solid rock on which we stand.
In you we place our whole being.
Trusting in your silence wherein your still small voice beckons.
