Church of the Nativity
Daily Devotional
Voices From the Pew
 As the deer longs for the water-brooks, so longs my soul for you, O God. My soul is athirst for God, athirst for the living God; when shall I come to appear before the presence of God?  Psalm 42:1-2 
Prayer is our connection with God, the discipline that helps our souls stay aligned with God’s will. Daily prayer is the most basic of Christian disciplines, helping us remember that God is present in all the joyous, sorrowful, mundane, and ordinary parts of our lives. By maintaining a steady diet of daily prayer, we learn to open our hearts and minds to God’s will, and grow to recognize God’s voice as it speaks in our hearts.Most of us, however, stay so busy so much of the time that it is hard to make time for daily prayer, or even when we make time for it, it is hard to keep our minds focused. One way to approach this problem is to  begin with daily devotions. This collection of daily devotions, spiritual exercises, and prayers was created by a group of people from Episcopal Church of the Nativity, Scottsdale. These are prayerful people who have found ways to share the prayers of their hearts with you. I hope that as you begin to use this book, you will find your mind enlightened and your heart opened to the presence of the living God, for whom our souls are athirst.Many thanks to Lani Sambach, the editor of this collection, and Mina Rafferty for her assistance.In Christ,The Rev. Susan Brown Snook 
March 1.
Spiritual Exercise Worship this week. Really worship. Use Saturday evening to begin  preparing for worship. Set aside a time of solitude when you can reflect on the power and the glory of God. Meditate on His love for you. Go early to church and spend time worshiping and thanking God. Pray for those around you that they might be moved by God during the service. Above all, allow yourself to truly feel the  presence of God moving among the people.
