Timeless Prayer

Friday, December 01, 2006

Codepoke has started a group blog: Timeless Prayer. It is a good place to pray the psalms together. My OT lecturer used to encourage us to appropriate the psalms for ourselves. It makes it so personal to pray to God with the psalms using our own words but sometimes, we need to just pray the psalms as they are, when we cannot find the words at all to pray.

Do come and visit or better yet, join us as contributors.

And would you believe it, it is already December - my favourite month but not without its feeling of nostalgia. It is a time to reflect, a time to give, a time to receive and a time to refresh in the love and presence of our Emmanuel.

John 1:1-5, 9-14

In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.
He was in the beginning with God.
All things were made through him, and without him was not any thing made that was made.
In him was life, and the life was the light of men.
The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it ...

The true light, which enlightens everyone, was coming into the world.
He was in the world, and the world was made through him, yet the world did not know him.
He came to his own, and his own people did not receive him.
But to all who did receive him, who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God,
who were born, not of blood nor of the will of the flesh nor of the will of man, but of God.
And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we have seen his glory, glory as of the only Son from the Father, full of grace and truth.

  1. Well here I am still stuck in November waiting forever to publish my Nov.30 post.

    We were just talking about prayer & the Psalms the other night at our book club. So good how they speak for us - not just agreeing with but engaging God. I'll check it out for sure!
