I don't know.

Dear friends,

It's been over two months since I've written here. I won't go into all the reasons for that but will say that grief has been a companion in recent weeks.

Today I ran across this idea about prayer that felt helpful and hopeful. I hope it does to you, too.


Did you know there's a prayer called the "I don't know" prayer?


You just go somewhere quiet and sit at the feet of God and you say "I don't know."


"I don't know where to go from here. I don't know what is happening. I don't know how to process this. I don't know what to do with these emotions. I don't know how to handle this situation."


And then with whatever grain of faith you have, you say, "but you know." And leave it there. God most certainly hears your prayer.

May God's tender mercies and kindness accompany you today and in the days ahead. God hears your prayers.
