a simple prayer

Holy God – in this precious hour, we pause and gather to hear your word– to do so, we break from our work responsibilities and from our play fantasies; we move from our fears that overwhelm and from our ambitions that are too strong, Free us in these moments from every distraction, that we may focus to listen, that we may hear, that we may change. Amen
--Walter Brueggemann From Awed to Heaven, Rooted in Earth: Prayers of Walter Brueggemann (Fortress Press, 2003 p. 61)
It's important at times to just push pause on the world, and go and be quiet and contemplate the supreme excellency of the divine nature. After all, that is why we exist and that is our high calling in life. So why not take 5min, and just reflect on the nature of the supreme being.
