A prayer for stillness / dealing with anxiety
My brain twists and leaps, swings and swoops,
never stopping, never settling to hear what You might need to tell me.
What I need is stillness. Silence. But where can I find it in this shouting world?
I must go inside myself, inside my moving mind and beyond it, to a place of pure peace.
I don’t know how to get there. I will need your help.
Can you stop the world for a moment? I need to be alone with you.
No more doing, just being. And feeling like that is enough.
Jesus, you know this struggle, this need to find quiet. You went out into the desert.
Help me find the desert that lies within myself. Let us meet there.
