Behind the Song

I first came across the line “Holy One, give me a quiet heart” while in services one Friday night. It was such a simple yet meaningful statement that summed up everything that I love about silent prayer.

 

Especially in the ever-deafening noise of the world around us, it is so important to be able to be still and listen to the quiet of your heart.
