Lenten Prayer Practice – Day Five

wise in good

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 51:9-15 Don’t look too close for blemishes, give me a clean bill of health. God, make a fresh start in me, shape a Genesis week from the chaos of my life. Don’t throw me out with the trash, or fail to breathe holiness in me. Bring me back from gray exile, put a fresh wind in my sails! Give me a job teaching rebels your ways so the lost can find their way home. Commute my death sentence, God, my salvation God, and I’ll sing anthems to your life-giving ways. Unbutton my lips, dear God; I’ll let loose with your praise. [MSG]

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

Holy God, thank you, for your creative work in me. Thank you, for your mindful attention on ________. Help me to breathe in your holy life-giving grace. Give ________ and me the courage to stop hiding from your presence. Help ________ draw on the power of mercy that saves us from our mistakes. Help us to notice your movement around us, and be free to sing praises of You over someone today. Amen.
