Office Prayers for May

- posted by Ian Thompson

Our website records indicate that on average about one hundred people are using our office prayers each week.  We planned in January to do this only for three months with hopes that you will learn the pattern of               Respect

                                Read

                                Ruminate

                                Reflect with Prayer

                                Rest

                                Respond

                                Reconnect

and be able to use that pattern on your own with any passage of Scripture. It seemed anti-climactic to end our office prayers just before Easter so we decided to offer a shortened version for Holy Week and Easter Week which has allowed us to finish with John 21. It is now time (in the month of May) for you to use this pattern, if you wish to continue with this method of reading Scripture for personal transformation, on your own.

You might want to choose another book of the Bible or you could go back to John 5 and pick up John’s narrative as we were before we took a break for Easter. You also could go back to our archives and use start with John 1. Since many are finding that this exercise has been very profitable we are committing to prepare Office Prayers for all of the Gospel of John. We will not be continuing our journey until later in the year (maybe June) as our collective schedule is pretty busy for the next number of weeks. Please feel free to check back occasionally to see what we are working on. If you decide to recommend this pattern of reading Scripture to a friend or small group, it may work well to begin with John 1 because you might find that the other portions will be available by the time you arrive, for instance at John 5.

Thank you for travelling with us on this journey. May you continue to follow Jesus as His disciples two thousand years ago.
