A few months ago, I began journaling again for the umpteenth time. Sitting on my desk are four journals from previous attempts. I started with great enthusiasm, then lost interest and momentum after only a few dozen pages.

Things seem different now. I somehow have become more patient and reflective. Taking time to capture my thoughts, feelings, and emotions appears more important than ever. With the perfect storm of current events, this is clearly a great time to pray and take action together to better our world.


How can more prayer, written or spoken, alone or with others, be a source of healing and strength for you and all of your communities?
