Passport to Prayer – Lent 2016
Friday – Feb. 19, 2016 –
Jeremiah 29:11: “For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.”
One way to become more aware of the Holy Spirit’s presence with you is through breath prayers. The Holy Spirit is as close to you as the air we breathe. Pick two simple sentences. One you will pray as you inhale a breath; the other you will pray as you exhale. Examples:
Inhale – “Jesus, Son of God”, Exhale – “Be merciful to me, a sinner.”
Inhale – “Holy Spirit, let me feel your joy”, Exhale – “O Lord show me your way.”
Inhale – “Holy One, open my eyes”, Exhale – “Holy One, heal me.”
Yep, we think we have enough to do already. Or maybe we’re uncomfortable reaching out to someone who might need help, afraid we will offend. Lord, thank you for giving me the names of these people. Give me the courage to reach out and help them this Lent. Amen.
