I have been praying in peaches a lot recently. I haven't had words as the hard has mounted. A friend who lost a friend. A friend who lost a pastor. A friend who lost long-term disability for no good reason. The deaths at Kabul airport. The list goes on in aching, particular reality. Sometimes I need help to pray. Sometimes that takes the form of liturgies like those from Every Moment Holy. Sometimes that's an app like Pray As You Go. Our friend @amyboucherpye has written a book called 7 Ways to Pray. As a gesture toward supporting one another when prayer seems hard, we're giving away a few copies. To enter, just share a way that you pray. However you do. If you tag a pal, you'll be entered twice. I pray in processing peaches. How about you?
