The Reading Of The Names, with verses from Psalm 61

Hear my cry, O God; attend unto my prayer.

From the end of the earth will I cry unto thee,

when my heart is overwhelmed:

lead me to the rock that is higher than I.

Psalm 61: 1-2 (KJV)

The Reading Of The Names

9/11/2011

Although I cannot understand, we know it helps to observe and listen.  Each in our own small and loving way.  The Psalms so often give voice to what would otherwise be wordless in our hearts.  Silence is part of prayer too.
