PRACTICE A STRETCHING EXERCISE of prayer. Lower your body as you are able, bowing down, kneeling, or lowering your head. Call to mind and heart a person or group bent down by life or small in comparison to what they face. Pray for that individual or group from your own lowered posture.
As you rise up from prayer, imagine lifting them up with you. Pray for God so to lift them.

This week we remember Antoinette Brown Blackwell (November 5).
