Creator God, as we encounter others today, let our hearts be opened to receive and share our innermost thoughts about prayer. Draw us into your loving arms, allowing us to revel in the assurance that when we speak our heart in prayer, we are whispering in your ear. Let our minds be free of earthly distraction. In our busy days, or when our journey seems long, or when we feel too tired to come to you in prayer, encourage us, Lord, to find a place of stillness, a place where we can discover anew that you are always with us. In your son’s name, amen.
This prayer is adapted from the resource A Thoughtful Prayer Life, written by Mary Button.
