The prayer life of a Christian can sometimes become tiresome, especially if you don’t feel like praying. We hope our simple prayers centered around everyday life will provide some guidance and help you grow in your prayer life


Time to Fall Back

The dog days of summer are long over. The last few weeks have likely involved becoming familiar with routines of school, work, and other general life responsibilities. While summer often brings promises of vacations and long evenings to relax, we can find ourselves exhausted by the need to “take advantage” of the season, trying to fit in ALL the things before it leaves just as quickly as it began.

Yet, when fall comes around and we get settled into our rhythms of life, our routines might begin to feel like an opportunity to pause for a breath. When the days get shorter, forcing us indoors or around a bonfire, we might discover the change has been one that allows us to slow down and better listen for the ways God is speaking into our lives.

And we can be thankful that, even through all of our seasons of change, God remains the same. 

“Now then, stand still and see this great thing the Lord is about to do before your eyes!” (1 Samuel 12:16).

A Prayer for When the Days Become Shorter

Lord, who turned darkness into light, be my light as the days give way to darkness. Help me still see your beauty in cold winds and evening fires. Be my joy in quiet moments. Be my peace as the pace of life begins to slow. Creator of time, use these shorter days to remind me to slow down and listen for your still, small voice. Amen.


We believe a simple prayer like this helps us in our mission to creatively explore how we connect with God in the ordinary, extraordinary, everyday moments of life. For more everyday prayers, visit this page!
