First Spiritual Exercises – Releasing Energy

It was God’s purpose to reveal to his people how rich is the glory of this mystery among the gentiles; it is Christ among you, your hope of glory: this is the Christ we are proclaiming, admonishing and instructing everyone in all wisdom, to make everyone perfect in Christ.

And it is for this reason that I labour, striving with his energy which works in me mightily.

Colossians 1:27-29

We pray for the vulnerable people of Ukraine, may they encounter a release of spiritual energy to keep them moving forward. We pray that peace and hope reaches those who are suffering and for an end to the conflict.

1. Desire...I ask the Spirit for Energy

I hold an object that symbolises spiritual energy for me.

I consider, 'Where is spiritual energy present in my life?’

'Where is spiritual energy absent in my life?’

‘What is the contrary of spiritual energy for me’?

I ask the Spirit for the gift of spiritual energy.

2. Choice...Today I choose the Way of Spiritual Energy

I relish working with Christ's energy and power.

I reject the way of spiritual tepidity, total apathy, led by a bad spirit.

I turn and walk in the contrary direction, from sloth to energy to deep peace.

3. Free... I live in the Energetic Trinity

I imagine I am in a circle surrounded by the Energetic Trinity, Father, Jesus and Spirit.

Each address me by name, saying, ‘My energy will work mightily in you'.

I rest for a moment, in God's boundless energy. I feel empowered and fully alive.

I conclude giving thanks for the Spirit of Energy.
