Practicing the presence

Consider the grace of God. How have you experienced God’s unfailing love in your life? Take a moment and write down specific ways you have experienced God’s loving-kindness.

Review the list. Now make up another list. Describe how you have responded to God’s grace in your day-to-day life. Are there any actions toward others that are the direct result of your experience of God’s loving-kindness in your own life?

Review the first list again. Go over each way you have experienced God’s grace. Write down one way by each item you could reflect the same type of grace-filled action toward someone else.

Prayers

  • Prayers of thanksgiving and petition
  • Journaling or silent reflection
  • “The Lord’s Prayer”
