Friday, January 30

Come to Stillness: Take a few minutes to allow your mind and heart to be still before God.
Opening Prayer: Speak, O Lord, as we come to You, to receive the food of Your holy word.  Take Your truth, plant it deep in us; shape and fashion us in Your likeness, that the light of Christ might be seen today, in our acts of love and our deeds of faith.  Speak, O Lord, and fulfill in us all your purposes, for Your glory. (Speak O Lord by Stuart Townend, Keith Getty)
Scripture Reading for the Day: Matthew 3:13-17

Reading for Reflection:
Prayer is creating a sacred space where you can be overwhelmed with God’s uncompromising love and acceptance. (Living in God’s Embrace by Michael Fonseca)

It is the voice of the Spirit within us that reminds us that we, too are the Beloved.  If we listen closely, we will hear these words of love.  (Embracing the Love of God by James Bryan Smith)     

Reflection and Listening: silent and written

Prayer: for the church, for others, for myself    
Closing Prayer: Jesus, lover of my soul, let me to thy bosom fly, while the nearer waters roll, while the tempest still is high.  Hide me, O my Savior, hide, till the storm of life is past; safe into the haven guide; O receive my soul at last. (Jesus Lover of My Soul by Charles Wesley)
