Prayer Devotional: Day 301

Watch, stand fast in the faith, be brave, be strong. Let all that you do be done with love. – 1 Corinthians 16:13‭-‬14 NKJV

Meditation is the practice of being still in the present moment. When we take time for contemplative silence, we can clear our minds and hear the Holy Spirit’s voice more distinctly.

When we meditate, we take time to watch our thoughts. Our “monkey minds” want to jump around to all kinds of different topics: past experiences and future opportunities. When we anchor ourselves with the breath, we can quietly and gently return our thoughts to what God has to say. The breath is a gift from God.

When we approach prayer meditation as a time for loving kindness towards ourselves and others, we can find the strength to deal with life’s difficulties with grace.

Jesus took time in the early mornings for prayer and meditation. So, too, can we. Amen.
