Lenten Prayer Practice – Day Twenty

rest a while

Where do I need to go to #rest so I may hear God’s voice today? Mk6:31 @alchemycork

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:

Isaiah 7:10-14 Then the Lord spoke to Ahaz again, saying, “Ask for a sign from the Lord your God to prove to yourself that these things are true. It may be a sign from as deep as the place of the dead or as high as the heavens.” But Ahaz said, “I will not ask for a sign or test the Lord.” Then Isaiah said, “Ahaz, descendant of David, listen carefully! Isn’t it bad enough that you wear out the patience of people? Do you also have to wear out the patience of my God? The Lord himself will give you a sign: The virgin will be pregnant. She will have a son, and she will name him Immanuel.” [NCV]

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

Almighty God, thank you, wanting to be in relationship with me. Holy Spirit, thank you, for wanting to be in relationship with ________. Open my ears to hear your voice, and my eyes to see signs of you. Help ________ and me to have the courage to follow the example of Jesus. Help ________ be the arms and feet of Jesus to someone who needs God’s comfort today. Amen.
