What better way to enter prayer on the first day of the retreat than to pray over the Scripture suggestions: Isaiah 55: 1-3. 10-11;
Ps 63: 1-2; and Ps 42:1-2, 7-8 -
As the deer pants for living water, so my soul pants for You, O God.
My soul thirsts for God, for the living God;
When shall I come and appear before God?
Deep calls to deep at the sound of your waterfalls;
All your breakers and your waves have rolled over me.
The Lord will command His loving kindness in the daytime;
And his song will be with me in the night.
A prayer to the God of my life.
"So what difference does it make how you pray provided your heart is seeking the One you love?" St. Madeleine Sophie
