Lenten Prayer Practice – Day Thirty-Three

Let us give thanks to the Lord our God. #voice #becauseitsaswinginarestaurantinbali 

Holy Trinity, center me now that I may notice Your creative intention, nest in the broad, safe space of Your presence, and intentionally nurture another with the same. 

 What word or phrase do I notice on which I may center:

Psalm 118:22-29 The stone that the builders rejected has now become the cornerstone.

This is the Lord’s doing, and it is wonderful to see.

This is the day the Lord has made. We will rejoice and be glad in it.

Please, Lord, please save us. Please, Lord, please give us success.

Bless the one who comes in the name of the Lord. We bless you from the house of the Lord.

The Lord is God, shining upon us. Take the sacrifice and bind it with cords on the altar.

You are my God, and I will praise you! You are my God, and I will exalt you!

Give thanks to the Lord, for he is good! His faithful love endures forever. [NLT]
