Silent Prayer

Luke 6:12
In those days he departed to the mountain to pray and he spent the night in prayer to God.

Right before Jesus selected the twelve apostles from his many disciples…He went off by himself to the mountain and “spent the night in prayer to God.” Jesus, the Son of God, showed us how to pray. He went off to a secluded spot…a place of silence away from distractions…so He could listen to God speak to Him. Have you tried this? You don’t need a mountain…you only need a special place by yourself. A practice of taking 10 to 20 minutes a day to sit in silent openness to God will change your life for the better. I know that it changed mine. You will find a new inner peace and direction. God speaks in silence. And remember…God’s voice will always be a voice of love, mercy, forgiveness and compassion.

Suggested song of the day– “Turn Off the Noise” on the Listen to Your Heart album.
