"...whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things." Philippians 4:8 (NIV)

Opening Prayer:

Father, I quiet my mind

and still my soul

to receive your goodness,

your generosity,

your love. Amen.

God calls us to Prayer

“Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.”

~Jesus, Matthew 11:28-30 (NIV)

Pray! Begin Today!

The short prayers in my books are great prayer starters. They can help you begin or continue a deep conversation with God. These prayers are profound, affirming and meaningful. If you feel empty, discouraged or disconnected these prayers can help you. Connect with God today. With or without the help of my books, I encourage you to pray.
