05.26.21 | The Spirit of Life & Peace
In today’s BREAD reading from Romans 8, Paul writes that “those who live in accordance with the Spirit have their minds set on what the Spirit desires” and that “the mind governed by the Spirit is life and peace” (verses 5-6).
During today’s fasting and prayer focus, meditate on these words. Invite the Lord to fill your mind with His desires, and the things that are life-giving to His children. Request that the Lord reveal something new about Himself to you.
Then, take some time to ask the Lord what He desires to do in and through you. Pray that He would provide opportunities for you to be an example of His peace to those who cross your path this week. And pray for guidance as you follow Him; that He would reveal the path He has set before you.
As always, we encourage you to share what you are learning from the Lord with a brother or sister in your community. This week, consider sharing what you heard the Holy Spirit speak to you, and submit it before your community for discernment.
