Lord, I ask You to quieten my mind.
Removing all of the periphery noise.
Yours, O Lord, is the voice that I seek.
I close my eyes, and focus on breathing.
You, O Lord, are the air that I breathe.
I still my body, and I relax my hands.
You, O Lord are why I raise my hands.
I think on Your word, and I remember.
You, Lord bring needed words to mind.
I praise You, telling of Your goodness.
You, Lord have been gracious unto me.
May the goodness of others shine through.
That they might be an example unto me.
I thank You, Lord for all of my blessings.
You have blessed me far beyond measure.
Touch my heart with the needs of others.
That I might go from here to serve Thee.


‘SERENITY ~ NOW! Next time you feel like screaming say a little prayer. Researchers
at Ohio State University gave college students negative feedback and found those who prayed afterward let go of the grudge they had been holding. “Prayer makes us more likely to give people the benefit of the doubt.” says Professor Brad Bushman, co-author of the study.’

It is so hard for us to wait.
Even hard to pause and hesitate.
For we rush forth without a prayer
As if our Lord does not wait there.
Yet does His word not to us state
That we should pray and then wait?
For He will guide us in all things.
It is His joy and His help brings
Knowledge we are doing His will.
What peace we’ll have by being still!
If God sees our needs before we ask
His Spirit ready, eager for the task?
Is God’s “Pray without ceasing”
Instruction faith will be increasing?
Our faith will grow, He would know,
Throughout His word He tells us so.

Psalm 91:15 “When they call on me, I will answer; I will be with them in trouble. I will rescue and honour them.”

Isaiah 65:24 “I will answer them before they call to me. While they are still talking about their needs I will go ahead and answer their prayers.”

2 Chronicles 7:14 “If my people who are called by name will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, I will hear from heaven.”


James 5:16 “The earnest prayers of a righteous person has great power and produce wonderful results.”

“Trust and see that the Lord is good”
