Show Notes

005 John introduces you to a breath prayer integrating scripture from this week's sermon from Montrose Church. 

We will use Ephesians 2:4-8 as the basis for our breath prayer: “My Grace Makes You Alive!”

But because of his great love for us, God, who is rich in mercy, made us alive with Christ even when we were dead in transgressions—it is by grace you have been saved. And God raised us up with Christ and seated us with him in the heavenly realms in Christ Jesus, in order that in the coming ages he might show the incomparable riches of his grace, expressed in his kindness to us in Christ Jesus. For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith - and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God.”

  • Pause and set your intention to become fully present to God who is with us in this moment.

  • Breathe IN and hear God say your own name, __________, in the most loving and joy-filled way, then continue by saying the following phrase, “My Grace”.

  • Breathe OUT and hear God say, “Makes you alive!”

  • Repeat by taking three intentional slow, deep breaths to engage in listening to God.
  • Notice the effect this prayer has on you. 

  • Original version 
    • Breath IN: (Your name) My Grace
    • Breath OUT: Makes You Alive 
  • Short version
    • Breathe IN:  Grace
    • Breathe OUT:  Alive
