In this episode John leads you through a simple breath prayer using Brennen Manning's Abba, I belong to you breath prayer.
A fitting prayer at this time.
Brennan Manning years ago: “Abba, I belong to you.” This breath prayer is known to have brought healing to many in suffering by restoring their true identity as the beloved child. Let us remember that it is God who breathed His spirit on us (John 20:22) and enabled us to call Him Abba (Romans 8:15-16).
In Ephesians 3:2-13, Paul describes how God initiated our belonging to Him, included outsiders in His family, and invited you and me to carry the message of inclusion (belonging to God) to the world.
Let us begin the journey of bringing the message of God’s inclusion by appreciating our Father for establishing a way HOME, where we find rest and strength in times of uncertainty and insecurity.
