Who Am I? (3) Free!

Freedom is one of the wondrous gifts of God. Yet so many of us feel bound up, unable to express who God created us to be. By living as one who is truly free, I am more of who God imagined in the first place.

My Prayer:

To be freer and freer, I pray.

Scriptural Touchstone: 

If Christ makes you free, you will be free indeed. John 8:36 (NRSV)

Invitation To Pray:

Where do you feel bound? What freedom do you long for? What prayers for liberty are emerging in your body, mind, heart, and imagination during this Lenten season? Pray them now.
