July 24 Prayer
Saturday Slow Down
Take the time to be still
Entering into the water
Float there a while on your back
with your eyes closed
Arms outstretched without a care in the world
Feel the weightlessness of your body
You are being supported by the fluidity
of the water.
This water is greater and stronger
than you are.
How does it feel?
What do you need from God the creator, from the living water that is freely available to you?
I pray in the place of surrender;
Lord I ask for an expanded awareness of peace and grace to live in and out of today.
Help me to slow down to be centered in your living waters that are inside of me .
In my head and in my heart I come to you and find rest there in the water.
I let go of all of my frustrations,
all of my wants and all of my needs.
I surrender into your flowing stream of grace.
Hold me up today as I slow down and find your peace.
Let the flowing streams of living water take me where you will guide me.
‘You are my well,
A fountain of gardens,
A mountainbrook flowing into my heart.’
Song of Songs 4:15, Ps.3
