Giving it a go

Giving it a go: first steps in prayer

“In the morning, while it was still very dark, Jesus got up and went out to a deserted place, and there he prayed.”

Mark 1:35 (NRSV)

Questions to ponder:

  • Why did Jesus pray?
  • What did he do in order to pray?
  • What does this passage mean for me?

Take a moment to sit in peace. 

Breathe in, breathe out, and let the Spirit do the rest.

Thank you prayer

Questions to ponder:

How did that prayer time feel?  Whether you prayed already this morning, or it’s been months or years, what was particular about this moment of encounter?  Take some time to jot down your response in your journal.
