NamePraying with the GospelsOnline Early Start 3 Handout 1Establish a quiet place within yourself. Then pray this opening prayer.The glory of the Creator calls me.The love of the Son shines on me.The power of the Spirit fills me with life and peace.Silently read a Gospel story to yourself.Picture the scene of the Gospel story and be present there with Jesus.• What does the place look like?• What does it feel like? Is it hot, windy, cold?Is it scary or peaceful or happy?• Where am I in the scene?• Whom am I standing or sitting near? • Where is Jesus?• What is he doing or saying?Talk to Jesus as your friend.• What am I happy about?• What are my worries or fears?• What feelings or thoughts do I want to share with Jesus?• What do I want to ask Jesus?Conclude your prayer.Loving Father, Son, and Spirit,you are with me here and now.Be with me even when I forget to turn to you. Keep me in your care today and all the days to come.Be with me when I am fearful and failing.Be with me when I am joyful and succeeding. Keep me close and safe, now and forever.Amen.Early Start 3: We Pray Together©2017PflaumPublishingGroup,adivisionofBayard,Inc.
