Word of the Day : Solitude

Oct 26, 2021 | Words of Wisdom

SOLITUDE – the situation of being alone, often by choice

Silence and solitude are complementary disciplines that aid our communion with God. But while silence almost always requires solitude, solitude does not necessarily require silence. We can use our time of solitude for prayer, verbal meditation on Scripture, singing psalms or hymns of praise or any other form of “noisy” activity. Solitude doesn’t require either silence or a hushed solemnity.

Scripture: Luke 6:12

“In these days he went out to the mountain to pray, and all night he continued in prayer to God.”


“In solitude the mind gains strength and learns to lean upon itself.”

— Laurence Sterne
