Holy Week ~ Good Friday

“I pray that you may be filled with all the fullness of God.”  Ephesians 3:19 Holy Week

To be filled with the Spirit, we first must be emptied, a frightening thought.  Only one thing satisfies the longing of the soul, the one thing Jesus said was needed, God.

Stand with your arms upraised.  Let the Spirit of Christ fill you, entering every cell of your body.  With each breath ask God to fill you.  With each exhalation let go of the ego desires that take up space in you.  Stay in the silence for a few minutes.

Pray with me:

Oh Tender One,

Empty us, Dear God.  We want to sit at Your feet like Mary, as Your Son hung on the cross. With lives full of distractions it is difficult to find room for You.  Help us satisfy the longing of our souls as we sit in prayer with You.

“A new heart I will give you, and a new spirit I will put within you.”  Ezekiel 36:26Holy Week

The Holy Spirit can transform us.  As we look at our inner selves we can see attachments that we cling to that have become dear to us and deprive us from the freedom of loving and serving the Lord. I carry a basket full of attachments with me.  They are all around me each day as I rise and walk this earth.  I talk on one, write on one, ride in one and the list continues. Empty your basket and give them to your Savior. He will freshen your spirit.

Pray with me:

Dear King of Our Hearts,

When we look at the palms of our hands we don’t see the scars of Your love, but a feeling of brokenness arises when we realize how many times we have broken Your heart.  With Your promise of a new heart and a new spirit, we will lift our hands into the air in praise of Your glorious love. Our hands may not be scarred, but with a new heart we can reach them out and carry Your cross as we walk in our world today.

“Remember, I am with you always, to the end of the age.”  Matthew 28:20

Prayer is more than a conversation.  Entering a close walk with God will sometimes call for words and sometimes for a simpleHoly Week

enjoyment of presence. Where do you feel God’s presence in your day?  Go to that place, and praise Him by honoring Him with your silence.

 

Pray with Me:

Dear Giver of Hope,

Walking down a hot dusty road is more than we can bear, even if we have a good friend with which to talk.  Who was with You when You took Your last journey? Those who loved You were quiet and afraid, but you are with us in the quiet and the noise.  You are with us as we bask in the simple enjoyment of Your presence.  We are blessed.

“My people have forsaken me, the fountain of living water.”  Jeremiah 2:13Holy Week

Jesus invites us to be refreshed by the water that springs up within us.  As we drink deeply of the Spirit of Christ, we flourish in love and service.  In the innermost place of the soul we enter the most deeply intimate communion with God.  “Bread of heaven feed me ‘till I want no more fill my cup, fill it up and make me whole.” Kneel in your quiet space and open your heart to be filled with Him.

Pray with Me:

Dear Precious Son,

How could they have doubted You, much less mock Your goodness and spit on your damaged body?  It is because of You that the innermost sanctuary of our souls can  be refreshed by your living water that springs up within us. It is because of You that we can experience that sacred communion of body, mind, and Spirit with our very own Living Water. We will not forsake You.

Holy Week ~ Monday

150 150 Debi Moses

It was Palm Sunday. The laughing children had walked down the aisle at Lovers Lane United Methodist Church with their palm branches waving and once again I started crying. Every Holy Weekyear it’s the same thing  until that glorious Easter morning. Our Savior’s last week on earth is one that stirs my soul, breaks my heart, and strengthens my faith. Wander with me this week and share your experiences. It’s a joy to be on the path with you!

“Abide in me as I abide in you.”  John 15:4

 

God is far greater than anything we can imagine.  Yet, through Jesus, we can know the loving nature of our Creator.  Scripture tells us that God is love, and we are His delight.  God comes to us and resides in our very being.  Do you feel a stirring in your soul?

Pray with me:

Compassionate One,

Why did You do it? The lashes seared into Your back, making You cry out in pain, and still You took them for us. Your love for us grew with each unbearable strike of the whip. To feel Your love grow inside of us is  a glorious wonder.  As we sense Your Holy warmth within us, we are made whole.
