Deep sorrow in our world

This past weekend brought compound tragedy into our world. The earthquake in Haiti, the fall of Afghanistan to the Taliban, the ongoing spike in COVID…

It has been sorrow on a magnified scale. How do I pray?

One great help to me over the past few weeks is to pray the Great Litany regularly. It is a helpful prayer that covers so much and guides me when I lack words. It is also helpful to be praying through the psalms.

I lift this before the Lord today:

Psalms 82:3-4
Give justice to the lowly and the orphan;
maintain the right of the poor and the destitute!
Rescue the lowly and needy,
Deliver them from the power of the wicked!

Lord, have mercy.
