In your time alone with God in scripture reflection, solitude, prayer and journaling, begin with a breath prayer like "Holy Spirit, come," or listen to a song from the playlist. During this series we are focusing on the grace of God for us. Be attentive to the grace of God for you, and let that grace be embodied in your welcome of others.
- READING: Take time and slowly read aloud the passage. What words or phrases stand out to you? What questions do you have? What feelings arise in you? Which physical response seems appropriate: hands raised or open? head bowed or lifted? standing or seated?
- JOURNALING: Write out the passage in your journal. Make notes in the margins to amplify or clarify words. Be creative with doodling, drawing, highlighting words or phrases, collaging with cut-out words or pictures. Take your journal with you wherever you go this season. At the end of this series you will have a journal full of your own reflections, thoughts and prayers!
- MEMORIZING: Commit to memory one or more verses.
- PRAYING: How does this passage inspire praise, confession, lament, gratitude, or guidance for yourself, others or the world?
