The Work of Prayer
“the real "work" of prayer is to become silent and listen to the voice that says good things about me.
To gently push aside and silence the many voices that question my goodness and to trust that I will hear the voice of blessing-- that demands real effort. ”
Henri J.M. Nouwen, Life of the Beloved: Spiritual Living in a Secular World
We are often told that we need to
Stop, Breathe, and Listen
Listen to the heart
Listen to the soul
Many assume listening involves
Stop doing that !
But in fact
The small still voice at the center of our soul
I love you
