In This Season Of Waiting Breathe in Life – An Advent Prayer

Advent prayer

I posted this prayer on Facebook this morning and have been thinking about the wonder of breath ever since. Breath is miraculous. It is life. Some feel it is the very essence of God. Yet it is not this I have been thinking about. Eric Garner’s cry “I can’t breathe” rings in my mind. So many people whose breath has been cut short by fear and terror. Images of polluted cities whose air is slowly killing their inhabitants. Asthma sufferers. Refugees fleeing their breathing strangled by hate and violence.

This is the season we not only wait for the one who gives us breath, we wait for the healing and wholeness that comes when all are able to breathe freely and deeply.

Amen… Denise did some research for a sermon she preached and YHWH whe pronounced sounds like a breath in and a breath out… Actually used that in my Pentecost sermon

Yes – I have written about that before and often use it the basis for breathing exercises.
