“Lord, give us confidence when we pray…”—Wed. Evening Prayer

Reflection offered via livestream from my home in Philadelphia, PA

Psalm 88
Mark 9:14-29

St. Andrew’s summer theme is about grace—God’s gifts to us and our being gentle with ourselves as we come out of a time great overwhelm and even trauma. Above is a casual reflection about the power of prayer: to bear our hearts to God, but also, according to Jesus in Mark’s Gospel, to rid us of the forces that defy God.
