Lord, I pause with you for these sacred moments.
May I be ever present to you and changed through them.
As I journey through Holy Week now,
I am aware of what is to unfold.
So I pay attention,
listening, watching, waiting, witnessing.
Deepen this journey within me.
Read the scripture slowly through a couple of times. Notice where you are drawn and pause there. What is stirred with you? Share it with the Lord.
Philippians 2: 5-11
Let the same mind be in you that was in Christ Jesus, who, though he was in the form of God, did not regard equality with God as something to be exploited, but emptied himself, taking the form of a slave, being born in human likeness. And being found in human form, he humbled himself and became obedient to the point of death— even death on a cross. Therefore God also highly exalted him and gave him the name that is above every name, so that at the name of Jesus every knee should bend, in heaven and on earth and under the earth, and every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.
Prayer of Response
by your extraordinary gift
seeking your forgiveness and transformation
I offer myself to you
in love and gratitude
