There are days that take our breath away, moments when we can’t breathe.
There are seasons in our lives when breathing is all we can do, our sole accomplishment of the day.
Life has a way of putting pressure on us, sitting on our chests, knocking the breath clean out of us. Difficulties, hardships, mishaps, bad luck, divine retribution keeps us gasping for air, trying to fill our lungs before the waves of the storm sweep over us.
Sometimes our prayers are just desperate deep breaths inhaled and exhaled hoping they bring a moment of stillness in a chaotic and cacophonic world.
