Prayer for This Week:
Keep fresh before me the moments of my high resolve.
Despite the dullness and barrenness of the days that pass, if I search with due diligence, I can always find a deposit left by some former radiance. But I had forgotten. At the time it was full-orbed, glorious, and resplendent. I was sure that I would never forget. In the moment of its fullness, I was sure that it would illumine my path for all the rest of my journey. I had forgotten how easy it is to forget.
There was no intent to betray what seemed so sure at the time. My response was whole, clean, authentic. But little by little, there crept into my life the dust and grit of the journey. Details, lower-level demands, all kinds of cross currents -- nothing momentous, nothing overwhelming, nothing flagrant -- just wear and tear. If there had been some direct challenge --a clear-cut issue -- I would have fought it to the end, and beyond.
In the quietness of this place, surrounded by the all-pervading Presence of God, my heart whispers: Keep fresh before me the moments of my High Resolve, that in fair weather or in foul, in good times or in tempests, in the days when the darkness and the foe are nameless or familiar, I may not forget that to which my life is committed.
Keep fresh before me the moments of my high resolve.
For The Inward Journey by Howard Thurman
God, I offer myself to Thee-to build with me and to do with me as Thou wilt. Relieve me of the bondage of self, that I may better do Thy will. Take away my difficulties, that victory over them may bear witness to those I would help of Thy Power, Thy Love, and Thy Way of life. May I do Thy will always!
God, please help me, and direct me to what I need to see about how I blame myself for what has gone wrong in my life, and how that is blocking me from relying on you.
God, please help me see the truth about my resentment.
Reading for this week:
Chapter 5, “How it Works” up to page 67 - kindly and tolerant view of each one.
Keep looking for statements that suggest questions and consider what they mean to me.
Make 2 appointments with someone from the workshop. Hopefully someone you have met in the workshop, and someone you don't know yet. This interaction is a major part of the work we do in this workshop. Discuss the experiences you are having.
