    • There is no one way to enjoy the Day of Listening s -- simply rest and discern as the Spirit leads.

    • Some ideas shared from the leadership of the HR Prayer Breakfast include:

      • Listen … Rest … Give thanks for the silence

      • Pray for someone or something in particular

      • Fast from food until noon or later as God leads

      • Write a letter to someone that you haven’t contacted in awhile

      • Specifically pray for those in HR who are facing challenges in their HR roles in staying centered on what’s most important from God’s perspective; making wise and God-honoring decisions; and sharing their faith in an increasingly hostile, political, and morally challenged workplace and world.
