Lent Day 11

Lent Day 11

11) "I spread out my hands to you; my soul thirsts for you like a parched land" (Psalm 143:6).

Lectio Divina Rhythms/Process (Repeat three times):

(a) Read the Scripture passage outloud ("Lectio")
(b) Read the passage again; Reflect on the focus question below ("Meditatio")
(c) Read the passage again: Respond in quiet prayer/journaling ("Oratio")
(d) Rest in God's invitation for you to read your journal out loud to yourself ("Contemplatio")


1st Reading: What is one word or phrase the Holy Spirit impresses on you? Meditate on that.

my soul thirsts

2nd Reading: Enter into the Scripture passage. What do you feel? What specific situation in your life today relates? Write down a prayer or pray quietly.

Lord, I need more passion and desperation in my life with YOU. I accept mediocrity as normal and don’t see a need to go full out in seeking YOU. Help me not seek what YOU can do for me but help me to seek YOU for YOUR sake. To feel a real thirst, dryness, and desire for YOU. Awaken me! Give me new passion for YOU. Amen

3rd Reading: What is God's personal invitation for you from the Scripture? You can write down what God may be saying to you or a prayer of thanks. Or rest quietly in God.

[Rev 22:17 NLT] 17 The Spirit and the bride say, "Come." Let anyone who hears this say, "Come." Let anyone who is thirsty come. Let anyone who desires drink freely from the water of life.
