We are so happy our Rev. Deb Pollex is back with her Pause, Ponder, Pray. We have missed it! This is a great one for February!
Pause: Breathe in deeply….breathe out. Breathe in deeply…..breath out. Repeat as much as needed.
Ponder: We don’t usually think of Valentine’s Day as an explicitly Christian holiday like Easter and Christmas. But there are many passages in the Bible that specifically speak of LOVE.
1 Corinthians 13
“Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, and it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres”.
1 John 3:18
“Dear children, let us not love with words or speech but with actions and in truth.”
The Bible is actually a whole book about Love, and since we’re entering the month of February (the month of Love), I thought it would be good to revisit a few love scriptures and then pray in a fun LOVE-ing way!
Pray: Let’s pray using the word LOVE. Grab your phone. Look at the first name in your contacts that starts with the letter L. Say a short prayer for them. Now pray for the first name in your contact list that starts with O. Now do the same for V. And now the same for E. Amen!
