“Suddenly, in mid-prayer, I felt compelled not to say another word. I felt drawn instead to reflect silently on the assumptions hiding underneath my prayers. What did they tell me that I really believed about God and His desire to act? What did they reveal about how I thought God was hearing my prayers at that very moment?” – Bruce Wilkinson, in You Were Born for This
I remember another time I was trying to pray…trying to read the Bible…but all I kept feeling God say was, “Rest. Stop. Rest. No. Don’t pray. Don’t read. Just be there.”
And then He gave me a vision of a friend that then I was compelled to contact and it changed my summer!
Has anything like this happened to you?
“Be still and know that I am God.” 🙂
