Prayer for March 30: Please pray with me. God of silence, today we thank you for moments of silence where noise is put away. So many in our culture fear silence, yet so often it is in silence that we can recognize your voice. Give us the courage to embrace silence, give us pause when we try to fill the void with noise or motion. Silence our minds and hearts so that we may be open to hearing you call us and to knowing how much you love us. Silence our excuses so that we might hear how you call us to serve. Help us to be silence for others so that they have room to know they are loved. Amen.
