How do you pray in a time of sorrow?
I am not talking about saying prayers,
but rather that conversation with God,
when you acknowledge your deepest needs,
admitting vulnerability and brokenness,
speaking of your desire to be healed and made whole,
confessing from the depths of your being that you are
lonely or depressed,
from beneath a sadness that presses down like the weight of a
thunderous waterfall crashing onto the rocks below.
Looking for God,
wanting to share the whole of who you are,
wanting to tell
How do you pray from that place of loss, sorrow, confusion?
And then I remember,
God is here.
I only need to turn around
and meet myself at the open door,
cross the threshold and
come back to that place within
where the divine dwells,
and there I can
let my tears flow,
flushing out my sadness,
creating space for hope and
finding peace in the silence.
It’s always the “place within”. Thank you, Madeline!
Isn’t it though?
