Lenten Prayer Practice – Holy Saturday

hope does not disappoint

Because God’s love has been poured into our hearts . . . Rm5:5 How might I minister #hope to someone this Holy Saturday?

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:

1 Peter 4:7-11 Everything in the world is about to be wrapped up, so take nothing for granted. Stay wide-awake in prayer. Most of all, love each other as if your life depended on it. Love makes up for practically anything. Be quick to give a meal to the hungry, a bed to the homeless—cheerfully. Be generous with the different things God gave you, passing them around so all get in on it: if words, let it be God’s words; if help, let it be God’s hearty help. That way, God’s bright presence will be evident in everything through Jesus, and he’ll get all the credit as the One mighty in everything—encores to the end of time. Oh, yes! [MSG]

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

Holy God, thank you, for the awesome power your love has. Thank you, for your bright presence so evident in _______. Jesus, give ________ an added sense of that presence today. Holy Spirit, help________ be quick to be generous with your gifts to someone else this day. Amen.

How will I intentionally nurture ________ today:

  1. Where is your scene (picture) located? What is it? So beautiful. It’s not only the homeless and the hungry that need to be reminded of the love of God and his children.

    • It’s Tanah Lot temple, not far from where Sam and Max live. and, absolutely–which is probably why Peter goes on to say, and be generous with your words and with any kind of help – these will also show God’s bright presence. Don’t you love the translation Peterson applies to this?!
