"Be Still And Know"

Prayer among evangelical Christians is always in danger of degenerating into a glorified “gold rush.” Almost every book on prayer deals with the “get” element mainly. How to get things we want from God occupies most of our space. Christians should never forget that the highest kind of prayer is never the making of requests. Prayer at its holiest moment is the entering into God to a place of such blessed union as makes miracles seem tame and remarkable answers to prayer appear something very far short of wonderful by comparison. We should be aware that there is a kind of school where the soul must go to learn its best eternal lessons. It is the school of silence. “Be still and know,” said the psalmist. It might well be a revelation to some Christians if they were to get completely quiet for a time—a time to listen in the silence for the deep voice of the Eternal God!

Verse

Be still, and know that I am God. Psalm 46:10

Thought

Christians should never forget that the highest kind of prayer is never the making of requests.

Prayer

Lord, I pray that You will teach me just to sit quietly sometimes and know You are God. I would aspire to hold on to that knowledge always and feel Your comforting presence.

“What I believe about God is the most important thing about me.”
