The practices here are designed to help us look up and notice the presence of God. These ways of prayer may be different from our usual notion of conversational or petitioning prayer. They are sweet ways to slow our hurry and inhale God's life-giving breath. We become softened and open to the gift of the Holy Spirit within us as we listen for God's invitation to us for this day. Any or all of them may bring us to a place where Scripture becomes more like a love letter than a text. Through them we are invited into the mystery of the transformative presence of God. Here are some of my favorites.
