#FaithOfAMustardSeed From where does my help come? What does your faith motivate me to do?

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 121 I look up to the mountains—does my help come from there?

My help comes from the Lord, who made heaven and earth!

The Lord will not let you stumble; the one who watches over you will not slumber.

Indeed, the Lord who watches over Israel never slumbers or sleeps.

The Lord watches over you! The Lord stands beside you as your protective shade.

The sun will not harm you by day, nor the moon at night.

The Lord keeps you from all harmand watches over your life.

The Lord keeps watch over you as you come and go, both now and forever. [NLT]

Line the nest of God’s presence with this prayer for _______ and myself:

Lord God, your DNA is in everything. Thank you, for your constant attention on ________. Open my eyes to see you in creation. Give ________ and me a clear sense of your presence. Help ________ notice Your protection and extend it to another today. Amen.

How will I intentionally nurture ________ today:

  • Appreciated this today, Nicole. The paragraph beginning with the DNA comment was quite helpful as there are three ladies in my study group that especially need to be prayed for right now. Thinking this way was helpful.
