Friday, February 13

Come to Stillness: Take a few minutes to allow your mind and heart to be still before God.
Opening Prayer: Our Father, giver of all gifts, You love and choose us, your least ones.  Increase our humility so that we might rejoice in the generosity of Your love and be mindful that the good in us comes from You, Creator, Redeemer, and Giver of Life, now and forever.  Amen.

                                                                           ~Macrina Wiederkehr
Scripture Reading for the Day: Isaiah 55:6-13

Reading for Reflection:
Celebration gives us the strength to live in all the other Disciplines.  The other Disciplines faithfully pursued bring us deliverance from those things that have made our lives miserable for years, which in turn evokes increased celebration.  Thus is formed and unbroken circle of life and power.  (Celebration of Discipline by Richard Foster)

Reflection and Listening: silent and written

Prayer: for the church, for others, for myself    
Closing Prayer: O Lord, our God, may we, this day, join the mountains and hills as they burst into a song of praise to you.  May we, with the trees of the field, clap our hands in celebration of your unfathomable greatness.  In the name of Jesus.  Amen.
