The Pause

The Lord showed me something very sweet. Just after we say, “Let’s pray,” and before the first word of the petition, there is often a short interval of complete silence,

a pause,

a breath.

The space cleared by the silence is the break between all that is past and all that is to come, and it should be savored as a delightful interlude of rest and preparation.
