Lenten Prayer Practice – Day Twenty-Two

attention on journey

How might I attend today’s #journey? #BePresent #LiveTheJourney

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 40: 5-10 O Lord my God, you have performed many wonders for us. Your plans for us are too numerous to list. You have no equal. If I tried to recite all your wonderful deeds, I would never come to the end of them. You take no delight in sacrifices or offerings. Now that you have made me listen, I finally understand—you don’t require burnt offerings or sin offerings. Then I said, “Look, I have come. As is written about me in the Scriptures: I take joy in doing your will, my God, for your instructions are written on my heart.” I have told all your people about your justice. I have not been afraid to speak out, as you, O Lord, well know. I have not kept the good news of your justice hidden in my heart; I have talked about your faithfulness and saving power. I have told everyone in the great assembly of your unfailing love and faithfulness. [NLT]

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

Holy God, thank you, for your patience with me. Holy Spirit, thank you, for helping ________ understand who you are. Help me stay longer where you are, at the very center of my soul. Help ________ and me to notice your faithfulness today. Help ________ have the courage to be an instrument of your unfailing love this day. Amen.

How will I intentionally nurture ________ today
