Watered Garden

Jason Minnix explores how prayer, justice, and rest work together and how they are all woven together [Isaiah 58:9-14].


  • How can I invite God’s presence into suffering today?
  • Where do I sense small sips of rest?

Spiritual Practice

  • Invite God’s presence into our suffering and needs. Set aside 1 hour a week to make a list of your needs.  Spend time making a plan to meet 2-3 of them. Anticipate set backs. Become curious about God’s support of you receiving what you need.
  • Practice Sabbath.  Does what I’m doing to rest free me up a little physically, emotionally and spiritually?  Take small sips of rest daily. Take a long drink one day a week.
  • What’s the one thing I’m being invited into today?  To try a more meaningful form of prayer. To bring my needs and suffering into God’s presence and to engage them with care.  To find rhythms of rest that free us.

This post needs your thoughts.
