Daily Scripture: Year 1, Day 37

From A Journal of Sacred Readings

My soul magnifies the Lord
And my spirit rejoices in God my Savior,
For the Mighty One has done great things for me,
And holy is His name.
His mercy is on those who fear Him,
From generation to generation. (Luke 1:46–47, 49–50)

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.
