Daily Scripture: Year 1, Day 41

From A Journal of Sacred Readings

Peace I leave with you; My peace I give to you. Not as the world gives, do I give to you. Do not let your hearts be troubled, nor let them be afraid. (John 14:27)

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.
