My current list has 23 names, each followed by a few lines of explanation. I close my eyes, and say each name as I visually, as in a cloud, wrap the person in God’s love. I remain with that image, doing my best to keep my mind empty, clear of personal chatter. That is the challenge: to keep the prayer about the person and God, not about me. Then I pray for all those whom I know, and don’t know, who are experiencing similar difficulties. I’ll write about that in my next blog.
