‘Be still and know’

‘…there is need of only one thing’

Read: Luke 10:38-42

‘Yet there is that all-important

stillness, and listening to God, which

seems to be inertia, and yet is the

highest action.’ Thomas Merton

Many things are important, urgent

and demanding of our time. In the

reading for this week, we’re reminded

by Jesus to take time to sit at his feet

and listen to what he has to say.

In all our prayers over these past

weeks and months, we have said

many things to God.

Take time this week to sit in silence

before God, to listen.

Allow the stories or situations in the

world that that have been featured

in this prayer diary, or in the news

recently, to come to mind and for God

to bring a divine perspective on these


Be still and know that I am God

Be still and know that I am

Be still and know

Be still
