As I Sat

I’ll be honest, for years I struggled during difficult times with what to say when I prayed. Hi, I’m Lysa TerKeurst with Proverbs 31 Ministries. But, I finally found exactly what I needed – if I’m going through something hard, I can pray prayers where I didn’t speak at all.

I can just sit with Jesus, making no suggestions- offering no solutions. Sometimes I have nothing but quiet tears and a heavy heart. But the beautiful thing is the Bible promises when we sit with Jesus like this, the Holy Spirit lifts up the exact right prayers for me.

And eventually, I sense God there and there is peace.

What are you going through today? Whether it’s a difficult issue with one of your kids or financial stress or just feeling overwhelmed by life, I encourage you to sit with Jesus without feeling the need to offer up any words at all. Just sit. For more visit
