    Practicing the spiritual discipline of silence helps to restore the peace and clarity that eludes the soul of a weary Christian pilgrim. What Is the Spiritual Discipline of Silence?

Quakers and silence. The silence in a meeting for worship isn't something that .

      Conflict, Silence, and Suffering: Meeting God During Advent During Advent, To Reconcile All Things will feature a weekly reflection on preparing for the coming of our Lord, written by a young adult in the YCDM (Young Catholics of the Diocese of Des Moines) community.   This is the second reflection. Night Prayer derives its content from the wisdom of the centuries in Scripture and above all in the psalms, but also from contemporary Christian experience of God. It celebrates the awareness that each of us who tries to pray is a part of the human whole.

Each week, after the Torah portion is read in synagogue, a section of the Prophets are chanted as well. The following commentary refers to this week's Prophets reading, I Kings It describes the response of those in heaven to the promise of Christ’s final judgment and vindication of the righteous, together with creation’s ultimate and eternal glorification of God: “When the Lamb opened the seventh seal,” the Book of Revelation declares, “there was silence in heaven for about half an hour” (Rev ).

In other words, to paraphrase one reviewer of this book, silence is not an absence, but a presence. In our biblical scene, set on a forlorn, storm-ruined mountain, the presence signified by such silence is the presence, God Himself.

This silence ‘speaks’ to Elijah, drawing Him into itself. Here we have encountered the mystery of God in most. Elijah Meets God at Horeb - He said, “Go out and stand on the mountain before the LORD, for the LORD is about to pass by.” Now there was a great wind, so strong that it was splitting mountains and.

Silence» Of Christ» Silence encouraged, upon the disciples by Christ. Then He warned the disciples that they should tell no one that He was the Christ. And Jesus said to him, "See that you tell no one; but go, show yourself to the priest and present the offering that Moses commanded, as a testimony to them.".

Silence makes us ready for a new meeting with God. In silence, God’s word can reach the hidden corners of our hearts. In silence, it proves to be "sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing until it divides soul from spirit" (Hebrews ). When life gets messy, when troubles mount and you’re tempted to forget God, let your heart cry out to him.

New Book from John Piper:. Please get rid of the Lord’s Prayer from AA meetings. Just use prayers from the book that doesn’t refer to Our Father.

Get rid of any prayer with Our Father in it. Take Higher out of Higher Power and make it A Power. This is often done in meeting for worship ; Pierre Lacout, a Swiss Quaker, describes a "silence which is active" causing the Inner Light to "glow", in his book God is silence.

In a Friends meeting it is usually called "ministry" when a person shares aloud what the Inner Light is. Silence is one of the most profound ways to dive deeper into the mystery that is God. I’ve grown to appreciate this idea through St. Ignatius’s Spiritual Exercises. For 30 weeks I was asked to sit in silence for one hour a day while using my imagination to contemplate the Scriptures.

In order to commune with God, we must have something to say to Him concerning our actual life. Prayer is the opening of the heart to God as to a friend.

Not that it is necessary in order to make known to God what we are, but in order to enable us to receive Him. Prayer does not bring God down to us, but brings us up to Him.

Bible verses about quiet time with God. We always hear from Christians I don’t have time I have to work, do this, do that, etc. Often when we say these things it’s all talk and I’ll prove it. You say you’re too busy, but you had time for. The prayer-meeting has this third use, that it is the resource of the persecuted church.

You will find this next incident, in apostolic history, in the fourth chapter of the Book of Acts, and there you will see that the prayer-meeting is the resource of a. And there is wonderful power in silence. Words spoken in reply to one who is angry sometimes serve only to exasperate.

But anger met with silence, in a tender, forbearing spirit, quickly dies away. HDL Under a storm of stinging, faultfinding words, keep the mind stayed upon the word of God. Let mind and heart be stored with God's promises. Our book is meant to be suggestive only. We realize we know only a little.

God will constantly disclose more to you and to us. Ask Him in your morning meditation what you can do for the man or woman who is still sick.
