Lenten Prayer Practice – Day Sixteen

beloved godisalreadythere

Where am I to go today? #Beloved #godisalreadythere

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:

Exodus 17:5-7 God said to Moses, “Go on out ahead of the people, taking with you some of the elders of Israel. Take the staff you used to strike the Nile. And go. I’m going to be present before you there on the rock at Horeb. You are to strike the rock. Water will gush out of it and the people will drink.” Moses did what he said, with the elders of Israel right there watching. He named the place Massah (Testing-Place) and Meribah (Quarreling) because of the quarreling of the Israelites and because of their testing of God when they said, “Is God here with us, or not?” [NLT]

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

Holy God, thank you, for already being present where you lead me. Thank you, for your constant concern for ________. Help me to seek your guidance. Give ________ and me courage to lead. Help ________ notice someone who is in need today, and by your provision fill it. Amen.
