Week 38, 2022

Week Thirty-eight of Cultivate Delight, where we are actively planning our spiritual endeavors this coming week with the goal of a consistent time spent engaging our hearts with Christ in his word, in prayer, in reflection, and in music. Below are some starting points for reflection, and I hope you find them helpful. The goal is to not just rush through these and then get on with your day. Take your time and reflect throughout the week on these items.

“Reading without meditation is unfruitful; meditation without reading is hurtful; to meditate and to read without prayer upon both is without blessing.”
– Richard Greenham, The Works of the Reverend and Faithfull Servant of Jesus Christ

Question 38: What is prayer?

Trust in him at all times, O people; pour out your heart before him; God is a refuge for us.

Keep Watch and Pray – The Porter’s Gate

Keep Watch and Pray

Before the dark, before the pain
Before the beauty of the world had been unmade
Your voice, it rang, Your words, they stood
You breathed Your life into the world and called it good

You will come again
We will weep no more
I wanna be ready, ready
Will we walk with You
Like we did before?
I wanna be ready, ready
I wanna be ready, ready

These fields are dry, Your garden burns
And all the rocks, and trees, and fiеlds cry out in turn
Your promise rings, Your words are true
All crеation once again will be made new

And You will come again
We will weep no more
I wanna be ready, ready
Will we walk with You
Like we did before?
I wanna be ready, ready
I wanna be ready, ready

Keep watch and pray
Keep watch and pray
Keep watch and pray
Keep watch and pray
Keep watch and pray (I don’t wanna be sleeping)
Keep watch and pray (I don’t wanna be sleeping)
Keep watch and pray (I don’t wanna be sleeping)
Keep watch and pray (I don’t wanna be sleeping, I don’t wanna be sleeping)
Keep watch and pray (I don’t wanna be sleeping)
