Every morning as I drive into work I pray. It’s usually the same prayer, Lord thank you for this day, help me to live for you. Please be with *insert all the people I need to pray for* and Lord please help me complete *insert whatever goal I’m working on*. In Jesus name, I pray, Amen.
Today as I was praying I just couldn’t think of what to say. As I started to pray all I could say was, “Lord, thank you for this beautiful morning and thank you for this gorgeous sunrise. In Jesus name, I pray, Amen.”
There was a different feeling in my heart with this short prayer today. So often we pray for all of the things we think we need but we forget that God is so much bigger than we are. He knows everything we need. I felt God say, “Be still, I know what you need.” It was a sobering feeling. There was a calm in my heart. I was able to drive without trying to think of everything I needed to pray for and just be thankful for what I have and to take in the gorgeous sunrise.
Be still, friends. God knows exactly what you need before the words ever part your lips. You don’t need to try to say everything, sometimes saying nothing is the biggest prayer of all.
