Then read the following: Have you ever misplaced your phone–which is on vibrate of course–and then asked someone to call it? We get really still and really quiet. Our ears perk up in all directions in order to be ready to hear that little buzz. It is a quieting down and high alert all at the same time. This Lent we will quiet things down and heighten our attention to the “still, small voice” of God and our own True Self. Listening through prayer as well as meditation on holy texts is an ancient Lenten practice. Come and rest, come and listen.

Read the scripture reading: 1 Kings 19:1-15 (attached)
Pray the Lord’s Prayer- Our Father who art in heaven, hallowed be thy name; thy kingdom come; thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread; and forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us, and lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil. For thine is the kingdom, and the power the the glory, forever and ever. Amen.

To end this time of worship say the following: May I become quiet enough to hear the still small voice and to find my own. And may the Creator, Redeemer, and Sustainer be with me this day and always. Amen.
