It is very likely that you can relate with all the hustles and bustles of living in the 21st century. You probably have more tasks on your to-do list than your 24 hours can accommodate. Or like some others, you wish you could have a few more extra hours added to your day.
As such, finding the time to be quiet before your Lord in prayer and fellowship seems far-fetched to you. For many, when they even get to squeeze out a few minutes, they just can’t concentrate on praying. Every other thing keeps popping up in their minds whilst they have their moment with God.
If you can relate to any of these, then read on because I am about to show you how to pray for stillness when life gets chaotic for you.
This is very important because reading the scriptures, we find that stillness is often a requirement for people to experience the Mighty hand of God in their lives.
A classic example was when the Israelites were before the red sea. God’s word to them through His servant Moses was:
And Moses said to the people, “Do not be afraid. Stand still, and see the salvation of the Lord, which He will accomplish for you today. For the Egyptians whom you see today, you shall see again no more forever (Ex 14:13).
So, we see that there is something about stillness that activates the power of God and positions us to receive the miraculous. Now, let’s look at how to attain that state of stillness in the midst of this fast-paced life we all live.
The way out is to pray the word of God in Psalm 46:10:
Be still, and know that I am God: I will be exalted among the heathen, I will be exalted in the earth (Psalm 46:10).
Prayer For Stillness
Dear heavenly Father, I thank you for my life today. I thank you for your love and kindness towards me. Thank you for all that you have done for me and my loved ones.
I understand that you know me much more than I can ever know myself. You know my strengths, my worries, my struggles and my pains even without me saying a word. So now, I wholly turn it all over to you.
In line with your word in Psalm 46:10, I refuse to worry, fret or be anxious about anything. I rest in my heart and mind because I know that you are God.
You are God over my life, God over my ambitions, God over my desires and over my struggles. Therefore, all things are working together for my good in Jesus mighty name.
If you ever felt like life was a bit too fast for you to catch up with, this is a good prayer to say. As a matter of fact, I wouldn’t wait to find myself all cumbered with a load of care before I say this prayer myself. So go ahead and do that too.
Have you see that?
