Week One: Deliverance (week beginning January 7, 2013)

The full outline below (Preparation, Presence, Prayers, Practice) is meant to be utilized during an extended period in the day. Some people have a preference for a morning meditation time while others prefer time in the evening. The Psalm reading should be selected according to the time of day you have your extended meditation time. Even so, I encourage you to observe all the “Morning, Noon, Vespers and Night” offices by praying the particular Psalm listed below at the appropriate time.

Preparation

  • Recite Psalms 130 and 131[2]
  • Moment of silence

 Presence through the word

  • Psalm Reading

Morning:   Psalm 1

Noon:        Psalm 53

Vespers:   Psalm 105

Night:       Psalm 120

  • Moment of Silence
  • Scripture readings:

-Monday:            Exodus 1 & 2

-Tuesday:            Exodus 3 & 4

-Wednesday:      Exodus 5:22-6:8; 12:29-42

-Thursday:          Exodus 13:17-14:31

-Friday:              Hebrews 9:11-28

  • Moment of Silence

Practicing the presence

In what ways do you believe God has rescued you? Share this with someone you know.
