Breath Prayers based on Luke 6:17-19; 27-36
Silently pray the phrase after IN on your breath in. Then silently pray the phrase after OUT on your breath out. Take your time. Breathe deeply. Choose one, a few, or all of them as is most helpful to you.
IN: Jesus, I’m listening
IN: Heal me, Jesus
IN: Deliver me, Jesus
OUT: Come in power
IN: Love your enemies
OUT: Do good to those who hate you
IN: Bless those who curse you
IN: Pray for those who abuse you
IN: Here is my cheek
OUT: Here is my shirt
OUT: Make me generous
OUT: Make me mercy-full
For the next few months, I’m reading a chapter from the Gospels each day. This is part of the Summer in the Scriptures reading plan sponsored by the Florida Conference of the United Methodist Church. Click Here for the reading plan.
You’re most welcome to read along and to join the Facebook discussion group, Summer in the Scriptures. You don’t need to be a Methodist or attend a Methodist church. All are welcome and all means all.
As part of the Facebook group, I’ve been supplying prayers based on the day’s reading. Feel free to post your prayers and observations based on the readings here or there as well.
May the grace of the Gospels, the challenge, and the call, inspire us to great faith and great good works in Jesus’ name. – Lisa <
