Week nine: Love and trust…

Preparation

  • Recite or sing/chant Psalms 130 and 131 (I suggest you memorize these two Psalms)
  • Moment of Silence

Presence (through the Scripture)

  • Psalm reading (select from below):
    • Morning: Psalm 10
    • Noon: Psalm 62
    • Vespers: Psalm 107:1-9
    • Night: Psalm 129
  • Moment of silence
  • Scripture readings:
    • Monday: 1 John 4:1-6
    • Tuesday: 1 John 4:7-21
    • Wednesday: 1 John 5:1-12
    • Thursday: 1 John 5:13-21
    • Friday: Read through 1 John in one sitting
  • Moment of silence

Prayers

  • Prayers of thanksgiving and petition
  • Journaling and silent reflection
  • Close with the “Lord’s Prayer”

Practice

Take a moment and list all of the things John says we can know in the book of 1 John. What is affirming about what we can know? What is challenging?

At the end of the week (when you’ve read all the way through 1 John), ask yourself, what is the one challenge you feel God keeps on bringing before you from this reading? Is he calling you to do something? Is he asking you to move out of your comfort zone in any way?

If so, what do you need to do before this week is finished?
