Hiding

Do I really think I can hide from God? When I most want to hide is probably when I need God the most.

My prayer

From all ridiculous beliefs and actions, deliver me, O God.

Biblical touchstone

They heard the sound of the LORD God walking in the garden at the time of the evening breeze, and the man and his wife hid themselves from the presence of God among the trees of the garden. Genesis 3:8

Invitation to prayer

Eve Hiding in the Garden of Eden

What do you look like when you are hiding?

Adam Hiding in the Garden of Eden

Position your head in your “hiding” pose. Bring your attention to your neck, your eyes, your mouth, your nose, your chin. What prayers are emerging from your heart, mind, and body? Pray them now.
