Psalm 37:7 (NIV)
‘Be still before the Lord’

Gracious God, on this third day of Lent, as the weekend approaches, we pause to consider the moments when we have felt your presence this week and give thanks. We give thanks for a conversation, a message received, an appointment scheduled, a joke shared, an anxiety eased, a word of encouragement and hope, or a glimpse of the beauty of Your creation. Living God, help us to continue to take still moments to come to You, to seek Your guidance, to reflect upon the past week and to receive Your strength and love for the days ahead. In the name of Jesus we pray, Amen.
