I have often heard the phrase, "God is as near as your every breath." What does that mean for you? How often do you notice your breathing throughout the day? When it's so quiet, that it's the only sound you hear... or when it's more pronounced like when you are exercising (on purpose or when you are trying to hurry). I would invite you today to be more aware of your every breath, and when you do remember that God is near to you.
Below are some breath prayers.
They are prayers that help you focus on your breathing while you pray. Take these prayers with you as you continue your day, remembering God's spirit abides in each of us.
"The Spirit of God made me what I am, the breath of God Almighty gave me life!" Job 33:4
Prayer for Today
"Speak Lord, for your servant hears..." (1 Samuel 3:9 & 10).
"The Lord is my Shepherd... I shall not want" (Psalm 23:1).
Try it this way: Ask God a question. Then breathe in your longing for God's guidance... Breathe out stress and hurry.
Try it this way: Breathe in to entrust yourself to Jesus... Breathe out to let go of wanting _______.
In Christ's Name, Amen.
