Lent Devotion - Wednesday

Wednesday, March 9


Prepare:  Take some centering breaths.  Straighten your posture.  Cup your hands toward the ceiling, as if receiving something from God.


Use this sentence prayer to center you, such as: “May the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be acceptable to you, O Lord, my rock and my redeemer.” Psalm 19:14

Read:  Read the scripture selection for today.  John 5:17-30If time allows, read at least one different translation.  Write down any words or phrases that stand out.


Meditate:  What words or phrases strike you?  Read them again.

How are you feeling in your mind, body, when reading?  What do you think this feeling means?

Pray:  Say a one-sentence prayer – your prayer to God – lifting what you have read and what you have listed to God for healing, fullness, and insight.
