O Great Love,

thank you for living and loving

in us and through us


This week’s breath prayer comes from Mari-Emilie Sweigart and is based on Psalm 46:10 from The International Standard Version.


The prayer is:

O Great Love,

thank you for living and loving

in us and through us.


A breath prayer is a short prayer — a sentence or less — that you can memorize then pray throughout the day wherever you are. It is a style of prayer from early Christian times that remains as powerful today as ever. You can speak the words aloud or to yourself toward a goal of unceasing prayer and a continuing connection to God amid the joys and challenges of daily living.


Members of Cedaredge Community United Methodist Church have shared breath prayers based on Scripture passages that have special meaning in their lives. Wednesday of each week, we are offering a new breath prayer for you to pray for a week. If you would like to submit a prayer, please email it to Dana Jones at:


We hope these prayers will have power in your life and in our collective life as a congregation.


Psalm 46:10 (The New International Version) says:

God says, "Be still, and know that I am God;

     I will be exalted among the nations,

     I will be exalted in the earth."
