Psalm 116 Prayer Movements

Pastor Laura and our fifth grade girls have been discovering the power and beauty of movement to express our prayer this summer. Last Sunday Pastor Laura brought some of this whole body prayer into our worship gathering. Here it is for you.

Lesson: Psalm 116:1-2

“I love the LORD because he hears my voice,

(Arms at your side, palms open, fingers stretched out and reach straight back behind you, palms open--chin up, heart/chest open)

and my prayer for mercy.

(Arms come up now reaching out to on either side of your body, bent at the elbows, palms facing the sky--arms w/ head in the shape of a "W")

Because he bends down to listen,

(Bend knees like you're going to sit on a chair, with hands resting above the knees)

I will pray… 

(Stand; Prayer position; palms pressed together in front of your chest)

as long as I have breath.”

(Arms reach straight back behind you, palms open--chin up, heart/chest open)

This is God’s living Word.

ALL: Thanks be to God.

Spiritual R & R Days

“Come away and rest awhile” (Mark 6:31). Throughout the Gospels, Jesus encourages his disciples to take time away to let their souls “catch up with their bodies.” The Spiritual R & R Day at St. Benedict's Spirituality Center in St. Joseph offers time and space for quiet prayer, reflection, reading, walking, resting and meeting with a spiritual director, if desired. Group prayer begins and ends the day. Midday prayer with the sisters in the Oratory and lunch with the sisters at the monastery are also options. Free will offering accepted. Lunch at the monastery is $8.
