Practice the pause. Pause when you're in doubt, angry, tired and stressed. And when you pause, pray.
Try pausing before you act upon things today. In today's connected social world, once something is said or written it stays with you and others forever. So pause, pray, and only when you are fully ready, respond. And remember, if you can't think of anything good to say – pray.
This is the confidence we have in approaching God: that if we ask anything according to his will, he hears us.
