Simple Grace caught up with retired New York Giants running back Rashad Jennings to ask him our favorite question. Here, he explains how he enhances his prayer life by sitting still and letting God do most of the talking:
“If I had to choose between me talking to God, or God talking to me, I’d sure rather hear Him!” Rashad says with a smile. “There’s a utopia of peace that happens when I get to a place of silence and just listen. My trick to hearing Him is that I try to sit still and quiet my mind, then I try to get even more still. When things are chaotic and I can’t get still, I look for other ways God is speaking—I’ll see Him in relationships, in nature, in miracles. This is God’s world. He’s always talking to us!”
