Friday Morning Zoom Battle Prayer 1/18/24
Friday morning zoom battle prayer is on! Let’s do this! New week, new theme with new topics. Come join with brothers in Christ and let’s grow together in the knowledge of Jesus. The LORD is raising up men that understand the times they are living in and want to pursue stronger relationship with God and each other.
This new week we are continuing our series.
Overall Theme: Practicing the Presence of God. Read Book together.
At any moment and in any circumstance, the soul that seeks God may find Him, and practice the presence of God.
Brother Lawrence, a 17th-century Carmelite monk, is one of the best-known voices on intimacy with Christ. He called this solitude of the heart, “Practicing the Presence of God.”
Following a near-fatal injury during the Thirty Years War, Brother Lawrence entered a Carmelite Monastery in Paris, crippled, and became their cook. While his daily routine included completing the mundane tasks of a cook, he did so with a passion to know and be known; for his Lord to be ever present in every part of every day. During his almost fifty years as a monk, he was sought out by monks and outsiders alike due to the beauty of his soul. He was said to be, “never hasty nor loitering, but did each thing in its season, with an even, uninterrupted composure and tranquility of spirit. He claimed that this was not spirituality, but the practice of the presence of God in all ways and in all times.”
Practicing God’s presence begins with noticing. Noticing draws our attention to the creation that surrounds us and the Creator who has formed a beautiful tapestry of goodness, mercy and grace right before our very eyes. Noticing takes our attention off of ourselves and invites us into the presence of the Almighty. Following are some ways to notice God all around you.
Go for a walk outside. Breathe deeply and slowly. Listen. Smell. Look. Feel. Ask God to reveal himself. Call out names of God. Call out his blessings. Be still and know.
Topics: 1. Answer God’s call to intercede. 2. Picture a broken wall. 3. Identify why the wall is broken.
