forgiven irish saying

#BePresent to each other. #Forgive one another. #LoveMercy

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:

2 Cor 5:20-6:2 We’re Christ’s representatives. God uses us to persuade men and women to drop their differences and enter into God’s work of making things right between them. We’re speaking for Christ himself now: Become friends with God; he’s already a friend with you. How? you ask. In Christ. God put the wrong on him who never did anything wrong, so we could be put right with God. Companions as we are in this work with you, we beg you, please don’t squander one bit of this marvelous life God has given us. God reminds us, I heard your call in the nick of time; The day you needed me, I was there to help. Well, now is the right time to listen, the day to be helped. [MSG]

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

Jesus, thank you, for wanting to be my friend and taking the blame for me. God, thank you, for your mindful attention on ________. Help me to breathe in the marvelous life you give. Give ________ and me the courage to not waste Your beautiful gifts to us. Help ________ draw on the power of Christ’s mercy and to notice the help you are so ready to give each moment. Amen.
