Prayer & Worship: April 2020
This meditation for the brokenness in our world, is based on Revelation's image of the Tree of Life, whose leaves are for the healing of the nations. The journey starts in the Garden of Eden and move through the Garden of Gethsemane and the Garden Tomb through to the image of the Heavenly City as described in the book of Revelation.
There is a 'tree of life' labyrinth that can be printed so that you to trace its path with a finger as part of your reflection. You can also colour it in if you like, or you can add leaves.
The labyrinth has three outer sections and a central spiral, which leads to the centre and then out by a short route. You could use each outer section to pray to one person of the trinity, then bring your thoughts together to pray to God who is one as you reach the centre. Finally, determine how you will make your prayers part of your life as you leave the labyrinth and come back into the world.
