Lenten Readings from Me-Ville: Day 20

ESCAPE FROM SUPERBIA

Pick a psalm, one that’s familiar but not too familiar, and pray your way through it. Pay attention to your spirit as you go: note which lines are particularly resonant with you, and which lines seem curiously irrelevant or downright troubling. I suggest beginning with Psalm 40. . . .

Read through the psalm, considering the possibility that by doing so you’re reading through someone else’s prayer journal. Consider the intimacy of the relationship between the psalmist and the God he writes to; reflect on a similar moment of intimacy between you and God.
