“The daily news summons us to prayer. The people, situations, and events of our times call out for our compassion and God's healing presence. In this blog we will pray in a variety of forms as we lift up the needs of the world. We hope that by praying the news in this way we will also expand both our spirituality and our practice….”
Every other day a news item is brought to my attention, along with a short suggested prayer. Recent topics include: A Prayer in support of Immigration Reform, A Prayer for Mentally People, A Prayer for Syrian Refugees, A Prayer for Those Who Live Alone.
There’s much to love with this prayer practice; I love that with a click I can tap into praying for events beyond my little world; I love that I am praying with others; I love this God-way of tapping into the news. I love the way this changes me and the world.
