Daily Scripture: Year 1, Day 19

From A Journal of Sacred Readings

I will meditate on Your precepts
And consider Your ways.
I will delight in Your statutes,
And not forget Your word.
Deal bountifully with Your servant,
That I may live and keep Your word.
Open my eyes that I may see
Wonderful things from Your law. (Psalm 119:15–18)

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.
