On Mondays through Advent we’ll practice an intercessory prayer method called “Prayers of the People”. This comprehensive format of call and response guides us through each sphere of our world with specific prayer. If you’re praying with a friend or family member, one of you can read the first part (the bidding) and one can read the second part (the response).
Let running water remind you to pray and give thanks for forgiveness.
“Wash yourselves; make yourselves clean … though your sins are like scarlet, they shall be as white as snow.” (Is. 1:16a & 18b)
Today each time you wash your hands, dishes, or laundry simply and thankfully repeat the words of the ancient Jesus prayer: “Jesus Christ, Son of God, have mercy on me.”
If you don’t receive blog posts via email already, Advent is a great time to start!
