Pray & Do:
On Wednesdays through Advent we’ll practice a 5-minute contemplative prayer method adapted from Joshua Banner’s booklet “40 Ways To Spend 5 Minutes With God”.*
Read Psalm 13:5-6 below. Choose a word or phrase that especially speaks to you today.
Then re-write the passage in the form of a prayer.
Now pray the prayer you have composed. You can even write it down on a small piece of paper to carry with you and turn to it throughout the day.
Write your own psalm-prayer
Re-write Psalm 13:5-6 in your own words to pray throughout the day.
* Josh Banner is the Director of Invitation, a practice of spiritual formation through a podcast that is invigorated by the movements of the Holy Spirit in a prison. I’ve enjoyed this podcast for it’s guided meditations and gentle teaching on prayer. You can receive a copy of the excellent booklet “40 Ways To Spend 5 Minutes With God” and support The Invitation at the Kickstarter’s $15 level.
If you don’t receive blog posts via email already, Advent is a great time to start!
