Invitation to a specific spiritual discipline:
I invite you as disciples/students of Jesus to take some time this week, to meditate on these words of the Scriptures. Perhaps the following would be a helpful method:
Read the Text for the Week at the beginning of each day (Luke 24):
Then beginning with Moses and all the prophets, he interpreted to them the things about himself in all the scriptures. As they came near the village to which they were going, he 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 he went in to stay with them. When he was at the table with them, he took bread, blessed and broke it, and gave it to them. Then their eyes were opened, and they recognized him; and he vanished from their sight.
Reflect on what the text means for you between the events of your day.
Pray this week:
Gentle Jesus, Risen Lord, remind me daily of your Presence, that come what may, I may walk the road in praise of You. This new day, I ask your ear in listening to the prayers that are on my heart. . . [include praise and thanks to God, intercessions for others, confession for personal sin, requests for personal needs].
We also continue to pray as your communion of saints on earth for ourselves, the church and our world. . . [include here anything else that the Spirit gives you to pray].
In the name of the Risen Christ I/we pray. Amen!
