Every day we each have so much going on, and everyone is so busy. This busyness can be in the form of many different things including work, school, helping or visiting family or friends, sports, leisure activities, and many more things. Often prayer can be one of the things that is not one of our priorities. Sometimes it might just be another thing to check off our to-do list. I know that I’ve fallen into this pattern of needing to get my prayer done for the day.
A few years ago, I came across a Catholic singer/songwriter who had a song that spoke to me when I felt like prayer was impossible – when I was so busy. Luke Spehar’s song Be Still reminded me that “only in the Lord is my soul at rest” while recognizing “it’s easier said than done, just to be still and know He is God.” This song constantly reminds me of Psalm 46:10, and to let God be God so he can answer my questions in the silence of my heart.
I’m so excited that the high school students on the West Side of Green Bay will be able to have a night of prayer with Luke Spehar on March 16. Not only will the students be able to hear Luke’s music and story, they will be able to join together to pray in front of the Blessed Sacrament in Eucharistic Adoration. Please keep all of our students in your prayers, so that they may know “that He answers all questions just by softly saying, be still and know I am God.”
