Sensing danger can be instinctual. It can be imagined. It can be overcome.
To swim with rays, to run my hand over their smooth and rough skin, to experience their making eye contact invited me to reconsider, “What am I afraid of?”
My prayer response:
Fear. Wonder. Caution, Interest. Amazement. Joy.
- For everything there is a season, and a time for every matter under heaven…a time to embrace, and a time to refrain from embracing… Ecclesiastes 3:1, 5
- In his hand is the life of every living thing… Job 12:10
Invitation to prayer:
What prayers are emerging in your heart, mind, and body?
Pray them now.
