Preparing for Silence

Still my body from its work, Lord,
Still my body.
Hear my silent prayer.
Still my mind from its worry, Lord,
Still my mind.
Hear my silent prayer.
Still my heart from all grievance, Lord,
Still my heart.
Hear my silent prayer.
Still my spirit from all anguish, Lord,
Still my spirit.
Hear my silent prayer.
Lord, bring me to silence and stillness
Lord, bring me to silence and stillness
Lord, bring me to silence and stillness
Into the restfulness of my body, bring your healing.
In this silence, be with me.
Into the quiet of my mind, bring your thoughts.
In this silence, be with me.
Into the stillness of my heart, bring your love.
In this silence, be with me.
Into the peace of my spirit, bring your holiness.
In this silence, be with me.
Amen
