treasure-unrelenting

Holy Trinity, center me now that I may notice Your creative intention, nest in the broad, safe space of Your presence, and intentionally nurture another with the same.

What word or phrase do I notice on which I may center:

Psalm 51: 1-4 Have mercy on me, O God, because of your unfailing love.
Because of your great compassion, blot out the stain of my sins.
Wash me clean from my guilt. Purify me from my sin.
For I recognize my rebellion; it haunts me day and night.
Against you, and you alone, have I sinned; I have done what is evil in your sight.
You will be proved right in what you say, and your judgment against me is just. [NLT]

Line the nest of God’s presence with this prayer for _______ and myself:

Holy God, thank you, for your love that never runs out. Thank you, for your mindful attention on ________. Open my eyes to your compassion for me. Give ________ and me the courage to recognize and let go of the guilt. Help ________ draw on the power of your complete forgiveness.
