Gondola Prayers


Good Enough, 184-188 Psalm 5:1-7

Lectio Divina:

Take 5 or 10 minutes to let your body relax, and your mind become receptive and open. Let thoughts come and go.

When you feel settled, read Psalm 5:1-7 slowly, out loud, as if you have never heard it before.

Read the verses again, and notice if one phrase comes alive for you in a special way.

Turn that phrase over in your mind, and see if any memories or images or thoughts arise. Talk to God, and ask what meaning the phrase has for you right now.

Read the passage again, simply taking it in, and resting with God.

God, I don’t know what to do with this load I carry. I feel like I am supposed to do something special to get your attention, but my attempts mean nothing to you. I don’t want to pitch to you, dream at you, or explain myself to you. I just want to sit in your gentle presence, known and held.
