Where is God? (Part 2)

Discerning God’s presence  has a lot to do with what my heart knows. I want to honor its wisdom better!

 

My prayer response:

O Risen One, help me to trust when my heart perceives Your presence.

 

Biblical touchstones:

As they came near the village to which they were going, Jesus walked ahead as if he were going on. But they urged him strongly, saying, “Stay with us, because it is almost evening and the day is now nearly over.” So Jesus went in to stay with them.  When he was at the table with them, Jesus took bread, blessed and broke it, and gave it to them. 

The revelation of Jesus in the breaking of the bread

Then their eyes were opened, and they recognized him; and he vanished from their sight. 

The revelation of Jesus in the breaking of the bread

They said to each other, “Were not our hearts burning within us while he was talking to us on the road, while he was opening the scriptures to us?” That same hour they got up and returned to Jerusalem; and they found the eleven and their companions gathered together. They were saying, “The Lord has risen indeed, and he has appeared to Simon!” Then they told what had happened on the road, and how he had been made known to them in the breaking of the bread. Luke 24:2-35

 

Invitation to prayer:
What prayers are emerging from your heart, mind, and body? Pray them now. Let them lead you where you need to go.
