Be Still: A Simple Guide to Quiet Times


Be still. For some, these two simple words are a welcome invitation to slow down. For others, they feel impossible, out of reach in our increasingly noisy world, or simply just too hard to maintain.

There is another way. In fact, there are many.

In this practical, easy-to-read guide, Brian Heasley explores the multitude of rhythms of Christian prayer and devotion available to every believer. From memorising scripture and prayer running to noticing beauty everywhere, he demonstrates how we don’t need to be static for our hearts to be still, and how even in the midst of a full, busy life, we can spend quiet time with God.

Be Still is a prayer book for anyone looking for ways to revitalise the way they pray or who is struggling to make space for devotional time with God. Packed full of ideas for different ways to pray and tips and advice for how to build prayer practices into everyday life, Brian’s book will change the way you think about prayer and devotion and equip you with all the tools you need to deepen your relationship with God.

You can use the book individually or in small groups, or read it alongside 24-7 Prayer’s new Be Still prayer course. It also makes a great resource for youth leaders looking to help teenagers cultivate daily rhythms of prayer and spend more quiet time with God, or as a gift for people starting out on their faith journey or those returning to faith after a while.

"This book describes the direction I would like to go in my prayer life. The author reminds us that there is not one but many ways to pray and that we can listen to our own minds and hearts to discern which way is best for us at this time. Since I am well into my senior years, I especially appreciated his reminder that God surprises us with new things in every season of our lives. So true!"
–Alice Fryling, spiritual director and author of Aging Faithfully: The Holy Invitation of Growing Older

"A practical and vitally important framework for enriching this daily discipline."
–Mark Sayers, author of A Non-Anxious Presence: How a Changing and Complex World Will Create a Remnant of Renewed Christian Leaders

"Whether you are experienced in the daily habit of 'quiet time' with God, starting out, or seeking refreshment, I wholeheartedly commend this beautiful book. A witty, vulnerable, utterly practical, rich, and creative guide, it will assist every genuine seeker after God."
–The Right Reverend Sophie Jelley, Bishop of Doncaster
