The psalmist wrote, “Hear my voice, O God, in my complaint; preserve my life from the dread enemy.” - Psalm 64:1 (NRSV)

I teach a dance class each week in which we move our 
bodies in different ways to express emotions, including 
negative ones. We bring 
our hands high above our heads and then move them quickly to the ground as if we’re throwing down a large, heavy object to let go...

Today's Prayer
Loving God, thank you for the many ways we can 
express our thoughts and needs. Amen.

To pray honestly


Respond by posting a prayer.

I join many of those who will pray for you as you seek to discern what you are called to be at this moment. May God grant you the courage to fulfill that calling. May we all open our eyes and see the misery, open our ears and hear the cries of God’s people, and, like God through the Lord Jesus Christ, be incarnate amongst them.”
