Personalize Jeremiah 1:4-8

Read the passage out loud or silently to yourself. Insert your name where there are blanks.

“Before I created you in the womb I knew you, _________;
   before you were born I set you apart;
   I made you a prophet to the nations.”
“Ah, Lord God,” I said, “I don’t know how to speak
   because I’m only a child.”
The Lord responded,
   “Don’t say, ‘I’m only a child, _________.’
   Where I send you, you must go;
   what I tell you, you must say.
Don’t be afraid of them,
   because I’m with you to rescue you, ________,”
   declares the Lord.
- Jeremiah 1:4-8 (Common English Bible)

I could not have found The Upper Room Moments of Prayer (on Facebook Live) sooner. For it is during these moments of centering spiritual practices, meditating on the words of scripture, praying with and for the world, that I find moments of transcendence, hear whispers of peace and hope, see glimpses of truth and justice, behold visions of love and beauty amid all the stark realities that are around me.”

Join us every Monday and Wednesday at 11:00 a.m. (CST) for prayer and worship on Facebook Live.
