God’s Covenant with Abram
Prepare: Take three deep breaths. Straighten your posture. You can cup your hands toward the ceiling, as if waiting to receive something from God.
Use this sentence scripture prayer to center you: “Create in me a clean heart, O God, and put a new and right spirit within me.” (Psalm 51:10)
Read: Read today’s scripture selection, Genesis 15:1-12, 17-18. If time allows, read at least one different translation.
Meditate: What words or phrases strike you? Read them again.
How are you feeling, in your body, when reading? What do you think this feeling means?
Pray: You can read the following prayer or write your own one-sentence prayer – your prayer to God – lifting to God what you have read and what you have listed, asking for healing, fullness, and insight.
Create in me a clean heart, O God, helping me to recognize and respond to the promises you have made to me. Amen.
