joy, wednesday

Wednesday, February 11

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: Psalm 118:1-29

Reading for Reflection:
     Joy dwells with God; it descends from Him and seizes the spirit, soul, and body, and where this joy has grasped a man it grows greater, carries him away, opens closed doors…The joy of God has been through the poverty of the crib and the distress of the cross; therefore it is insuperable, irrefutable. (True Patriotism by Dietrich Bonhoeffer)

Reflection and Listening: silent and written

Prayer: for the church, for others, for myself    
Closing Prayer: Generous Lord, the wonders of your extravagant love display themselves in the glittering beauty of the night sky and the abundant fruitfulness of the earth.  You have led us faithfully throughout our years and in Jesus you have shown us the way to fullness of life.  May our gratitude know no bounds as we praise your name in word and deed.  Amen. (A Guide to Prayer for All Who Walk with God by Rueben P. Job, Norman Shawchuck, and John Mogabgab)
