Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.

A prayer as your embrace the silence of a noisy world

Dear God,
    Speak gently in my silence.
    When the loud outer noises of my surroundings
    and the loud inner noises of my fears
    keep pulling me away from you,
    help me to trust that you are still there
    even when I am unable to hear you.
    Give me ears to listen to your small, soft voice saying:
    “Come to me, you who are overburdened,
    and I will give you rest.…
    for I am gentle and humble of heart.”
    Let that loving voice be my guide.
