We begin today with what it means to “be still and know that he is God.” This is the first step in the prayer model I mentioned a moment ago. To attend to the presence of God you need to pause. To start you must stop. This is the first step to a deeper life of prayer. Put down your wish list and wait. Sit quietly with God. Become fully present to him in place and time so your scattered senses can recenter themselves on God’s eternal presence.
