Pray and Pause

I recently purchased some prayer beads made of olive word.  These aren’t just any prayer beads.  These beautiful beads are called Pray and Pause beads.  What a wonderful idea!  In between each prayer bead is a smaller bead.  The idea is that when my fingers move from the larger bead to the smaller bead, it’s time to pause to listen and reflect.

Wouldn’t it be great if I approached my prayer life that way on a regular basis?  What would happen if, when I stopped to pray about a situation, I also paused to allow God to speak into my heart or take action in my life?


Here are some thoughts about how I can do this:

Whatever I pray for, I need to pause and wait patiently for God to do His will in His time.
  Do you need to add some pauses to your prayers?

But those who wait for the Lord shall renew their strength,
    they shall mount up with wings like eagles,
they shall run and not be weary, they shall walk and not faint.
~Isaiah 40:31 NRSV
