Daily Scripture: Year 1, Day 12

From A Journal of Sacred Readings

You are my hiding place;
You will preserve me from trouble
And surround me with songs of deliverance.
You will instruct me and teach me in the way I should go;
You will counsel me and watch over me. (Psalm 32:7–8)

Read: Slowly read the Scripture passage several times.

Reflect: Reflect and ruminate on the words and phrases in the text. Which words, phrases, or images speak most to you?

Respond: Offer the internalized passage back to God in the form of a personalized prayer of adoration, confession, renewal, petition, intercession, affirmation, or thanksgiving.

Rest: What word or image encapsulates the spirit of the passage for you? Take a few minutes to present yourself before God in silence and yieldedness. When your mind wanders, center yourself by returning to the spirit of the passage.
