A Short Devotion With Each Breath

Since every breath is a gift from God, it’s a given that some portion ought to be directed back to Him.

A Short Devotion With Each Breath

Let everything that has breath praise the Lord. (Psalm 150:6)

I have aspirations. Not of grandeur or power, but the old-fashioned kind: I breathe. And since every breath is a gift from God, it’s a given that some portion ought to be directed back to Him. So I keep a stock of breath-long prayers on hand to use throughout the day:

Lord Jesus, I love you.

Holy Spirit, guide my words.

Father, have mercy on me.

Father, forgive me.

Jesus, help me.

Lord, I praise you.

You get the idea. One breath, one prayer. It’s a simple act that can permeate our days. We inhale an average of 15 times a minute, more than 20,000 times a day. Try using a few of those breaths—5? 10? 20?—to exhale your love and whisper your devotion.
