At 7pm Rob will post studies for slow individual reflection on the Psalms – on Facebook, here on our website and in our WhatsApp groups (Let’s Pray and Let’s Enourage).
Visit our YouTube channel –https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCGmlQlHQbmFUfMm3oHI7_nQ – for an introduction (Tuesday Thought Study) to these summer studies that will allow us to linger in the Psalms we’ve looked at together since lockdown.
There will be a post on the blog every Thursday – leading into Sunday’s teaching. The post will then be updated on Sundays, for further reflection.
Lord of changing seasons,
we thank you for summer.
This year, like everything else, our summer feels different:
our holiday plans have been disrupted,
our church life feels like it is winding up not down,
school holidays feel like an extension of lockdown,
rather than a welcome change of rhythm and routine.
Often, we treat summer like an escape from reality,
but this year we need it to offer rest on an unfinished journey.
We come to you as reeds bruised by a stormy spring,
knowing that you desire to lift us up, not break us.
The smoldering wick of our spirit burns low,
but you want to fan it back into flame,
not see it snuffed out.
Shine again upon our lives like summer sun.
Calm our troubled souls like summer breeze.
Help us to relax into the carefreeness of long summer days
So renew us in mind.
Refresh us in body.
Restore us in spirit.
Recreate us again this summer,
that we might better bear again the likeness of your Son,
and find our rest in him.
In Jesus’ Name.
Amen.Let’s Pray, www.prebyterianireland.org.uk
