    No temptation has overtaken you that is

    not common to man. God is faithful, and

    he will not let you be tempted beyond your ability, but with the temptation he

    will also provide the way of escape, that

    you may be able to endure it.

    Years ago I responded to letters within a

    couple of weeks and kept my

    correspondents happy. Then came the

    fax machine, and they seemed content

    with receiving a response within a

    couple of days. Today, with email, instant

    messaging, and mobile phones, a

    response is expected the same day!

    Be Still

    Be still, and know that I am God. In this familiar

    verse from Psalm 46 I read two commands of equal

    importance. First, we must be still, something that

    modern life conspires against. In this hectic, buzzing

    world, even a few moments of quiet do not come

    naturally to us. And stillness prepares us for the

    second command: Know that I am God; I will be

    exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the

    earth. In the midst of a world that colludes to

    suppress, not exalt, God, how do I carve out time

    and allow Him to nourish my inner life?

    Prayer, writes Patricia Hampl, is a habit of

    attention brought to bear on all that is. Ah, prayer

    . . . a habit of attention. Be still and know. The first

    step in prayer is to acknowledge or to know that

    God is God. And in that attention, that focus, all

    else comes into focus. Prayer allows us to admit our

    failures, weaknesses, and limitations to the One

    who responds to human vulnerability with infinite

    mercy.

    Dear Lord, help me to be still. Nourish my soul as I

    spend time with You in prayer.

    In prayer, God can quiet our minds.
