Breath Prayers Based on Mark 6

summer in the scriptures- Mark (5)

Based on Mark 6:6-13
Jesus sends the twelve two by two

IN: Jesus, you send us
OUT: We will go

IN: Jesus, you send us
OUT: We receive your empowerment

IN: Jesus, you send us
OUT: We leave our baggage

IN: Jesus, you send us
OUT: Some will welcome, some will refuse

IN: Jesus, you send us
OUT: Bring many to saving faith

IN: Jesus, you send us
OUT: Heal through us

I’m new to breath prayers. Maybe you are, too. Pray the phrase after IN on your breath in. Pray the phrase after OUT on your breath out. Take your time. Breathe deeply. If no phrase is offered after IN or OUT, just breathe. If more than one breath prayer is provided, choose one, a few, or all of them as is most helpful to you. I find breath prayers especially helpful before times of stillness and silence with God.

May the grace of the Gospels, the challenge, and the call, inspire us to great faith and great good works in Jesus’ name. – Lisa <><

Midweek Devotion- Psalm 3

There is a Balm in Gilead
African American Spiritual
Public Domain

Chorus
There is a balm in Gilead,
To make the wounded whole;
There is a balm in Gilead,
To heal the sin-sick soul.

Sometimes I feel discouraged,
And think my work’s in vain,
But then the Holy Spirit
Revives my soul again. (Chorus)

Don’t ever feel discouraged,
‘Cause Jesus is your friend,
And if you lack for knowledge,
He’ll not refuse to lend. (Chorus)

If you cannot preach like Peter,
If you cannot pray like Paul,
You can tell the love of Jesus,
And say He died for all. (Chorus)

You’re encouraged to use the following process as you read scripture.
We use this process together on Wednesdays at 8:00AM EST.

Bind us together, Lord, bind us together
With cords that cannot be broken.
Bind us together, Lord, bind us together, Lord,
Bind us together in love.

There is only one God, there is only one King,
There is only one Body, that is why we sing:
