During the past few days, I realized that my normal prayer practices were not working very well. When I went into meditation or silence, my brain filled up with anxiety. I’ve realized that I need a different set of practices in this time of crisis. Here are some practices that seem to be working for me. (And I’d like to know — what practices are working for you these days? -Please let me know!)
Bring in Spring. Fresh flowers from the yard brought inside.
Share the light. I keep a candle burning when I’m awake.
Meditate with others. My Headspace meditation app invites me to meditate with others beginning every 1/2 hour.
Daily prayer. Upper room colleagues are leading morning prayer each day at 11:00 a.m. (Central Time). We are using Facebook Live. Like our Upper Room Facebook page and tune in to pray with us.
Pray for others. I’m spending a little bit of time each day praying for others on The Upper Room Prayer Wall.
