Welcome to Week 2 Day 1
It is good to enter into the time of meditative prayer with a spirit of quiet and relaxation. Let the mystery of God be near you, and let yourself be open to God’s gift of the Spirit.
OT Psalm 2: 2, 7
NT Luke 9:18-20
Presence: Take two deep cleansing breaths, remembering that God is the giver of life. “Here I am God. Thank you for your presence.”
Read Luke 9:18-20 once quietly and once aloud.
Gospel Contemplation:Enter into the story, hearing the conversation between Jesus and his disciples. Imagine yourself as one of the disciples, hearing Jesus asking, “Who do you say I am?” After reading, stay with Jesus, allowing the story to unfold for you.
Read Luke 9:18-20
Once when Jesus was praying in private and his disciples were with him, he asked them, “Who do the crowds say I am?”
They replied, “Some say John the Baptist; others say Elijah; and still others, that one of the prophets of long ago has come back to life.”
“But what about you?” he asked. “Who do you say I am?” Peter answered, “God’s Messiah.”
Journal your prayer and experience of this time.
