I have a curious little file in my email. It is called “images”. Here is where I place pictures of people that I pray for. I can tend to pray comfortably outside the place of reality when I am dutifully listing a name or a need. It is when I open this file that I can no longer avoid the fact that this person is more than just an image, but “made in the image”, my sister or my brother.
I will keep this beautiful image before me, praying and fasting, for Congo is in need today, this very minute. Please, would you pray as well?
