Slow down. Step into the Spirit’s Rhythm.

A new day is beginning. God invites you into his presence. God invites you to give your day to him. God invites you to give your life to him.  Join your brothers and sisters in Christ in prayer.

Psalm 39:1-8

I said, “I will watch my ways

    and keep my tongue from sin;

I will put a muzzle on my mouth

    while in the presence of the wicked.”

So I remained utterly silent,

    not even saying anything good.

But my anguish increased;

    my heart grew hot within me.

While I meditated, the fire burned;

    then I spoke with my tongue:

“Show me, Lord, my life’s end

    and the number of my days;

    let me know how fleeting my life is.

You have made my days a mere handbreadth;

    the span of my years is as nothing before you.

Everyone is but a breath,

    even those who seem secure.[b]

“Surely everyone goes around like a mere phantom;

    in vain they rush about, heaping up wealth

    without knowing whose it will finally be.

“But now, Lord, what do I look for?

    My hope is in you.

Save me from all my transgressions;

    do not make me the scorn of fools.
