Last year, when the world was lured into becoming more mean-spirited than I have ever seen in my lifetime, I felt compelled to offer prayers of compassion every day . . . sending Christ’s love and mercy to heal our world. I created a little Sanctuary of Prayer to carry with me, so when I walk the Prayer Paths I am prompted to stop and move into this realm of grace.
When we want to shift our focus from our deep concerns and agony over the cares of the world it is helpful to have a spiritual practice that immediately moves us into God’s peace and presence.
It can be as simple as placing your hand over your heart;
or turning a ring on your finger;
some wear bracelets that they switch onto the other wrist;
you may pause and breathe in the peace and love of Christ’s presence;
or repeat a breath prayer of words that are meaningful to you.
Whatever feels natural and gently moves you into the sanctuary of your heart ~ ~ do that!
May blessings of peace and mercy be upon your path this day.
With love to you ~ ~ Anna Lin +
