In our worship this week, we will share in the prayers and hymns of the Liturgy of Grace. This can be found in the PDF included below. I also will be talking some about prayer practice and suggest a 2 different ways that we can enter into prayer.
Sometimes we may struggle to quiet our minds and bodies enough to be in a listening posture toward God – so that we might nurture that relationship. You may have walked a labyrinth before, but there are also finger labyrinths – ones you can trace with a finger on paper or carved into different substances like wood, metal or stone. Simply search for “printable finger labyrinth” to find ones you can print at home. More info here: https://devozine.upperroom.org/spiritual-practices/praying-with-a-finger-labyrinth/
I also briefly describe a prayer practice where we draw out out prayers symbolically through a prayer map. We start with ourselves and what we are in need of or might offer as praise and then we move outward through the people and issues that are known to us.
