“Be still, and know that I am God”. We have created a Prayer Space in front of the altar in the Lady Chapel, with visual aids and suggestions for personal reflection. These will be changed monthly,and everyone is welcome to contribute ideas for future themes. Rev Grace Redpath will be delighted to discuss ideas with you. This month’s Prayer Space, ‘Praying with’ Pictures has been created by Steve Wright.   

 

 

 

    

‘Praying With‘ Pictures

Take a moment to become still and settle.                                                                                

Then just scan the pictures

 and see which one you are drawn to.                                                                 

 Pick it up, Examine it, slowly…….

Take in The Image.

Reflect on it, let it speak to you, ruminate on a particular  aspect, taste it, sense it.

Respond and speak to God. Tell Him what you see, ask Him what He is showing you.                     

After a while, rest in silence, in God’s presence.

Take a note to capture what has struck you, what has stood out for you .

Has your understanding of God changed? What about your place in the on going story of Creation?

Can you see something of the Divine in the life in the images you see?                                                                           

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

                         

 

Psalm 46

God is our refuge and strength,
    an ever-present help in trouble.
 Therefore we will not fear, though the earth give way
    and the mountains fall into the heart of the sea,
 though its waters roar and foam
    and the mountains quake with their surging.

 There is a river whose streams make glad the city of God,
    the holy place where the Most High dwells.
 God is within her, she will not fall;
    God will help her at break of day.
 Nations are in uproar, kingdoms fall;
    he lifts his voice, the earth melts.

 The Lord Almighty is with us;
    the God of Jacob is our fortress.

 Come and see what the Lord has done,
    the desolations he has brought on the earth.
 He makes wars cease
    to the ends of the earth.
He breaks the bow and shatters the spear;
    he burns the shields with fire.
 He says, “Be still, and know that I am God;
    I will be exalted among the nations,
    I will be exalted in the earth.”

 The Lord Almighty is with us;
    the God of Jacob is our fortress.

 

“One shall tell another”

We had this lovely hymn at Tea and Hymns on July 8th. It ties in well with Grace’s recent sermon on Discipleship. Click the link and listen for yourself (it starts after a few seconds)
