The Silence at the Center: Thomas Kelly

"Over the margins of life comes a whisper, a faint call, a premonition of richer living which we know we are passing by. We have hints that there is a way of life vastly richer and deeper than all of this hurried existence, a life of unhurried serenity and peace and power. If only we could slip over into that Center! If only we could find the Silence which is the source of sound!"
         ~ Thomas Kelly, 20th Century Quaker

Heavenly Father,
We thank you for your unending mercy and grace. For your love and faithfulness.
May you be soveriegn over our hearts, over  the plans we have for our lives.
May your plans become our plans.
May our will become your will as through your Word and through prayer we come to know you more.
May we seek out and embrace time each day where we find you in the stillness. When our hearts cry out to may you draw us deeper into your presence, into the serenity and peace that only you can offer our souls. May we be children of God attentive to the whispers of your Spirit and may those whispers refresh our souls with your truth, light and reality so that we may radiate your love and the hope of your salvation to a fallen world.
May we never cease to bring you glory, honor and praise.
In Jesus' name,


  1. Thank you Jessica for being such a vessel of light. Like in that photo you shared today, you shine your light into dark places.
    Thank you for reminding me to be still and slip into that Center.
    What a beautiful prayer!
