A Prayer to Be Still In His Presence
Lord, please increase in me the desire for You above everything else, the desire to spend time with You. Give me the grace to be still with You today, even if just for 5-minutes at a time.

It is in Your presence that the ordinary has the power to become extraordinary.
Root deeply within me the desire to discern and follow Your will each day of my life. Stir up in me a hunger to follow You more closely than ever before, so that quiet moments with You become an utter necessity for my survival, like food and water.
I thank you for Your everlasting love for me.
In the name of Jesus I pray. Amen.
“The Lord is in his holy temple. All the earth be quiet in his presence.” – Habakkuk 2:20

Thank you for such an incredibly beautiful prayer, De! Once again you have touched me right where I am on my faith journey…longing to find silence, true solitude where I may hear and encounter God’s loving Presence…longing to know and accomplish His Will more fully and knowing what that looks like in my life right now.
Thank you again! God Bless You and all you do!
