This morning, I spent time in centering prayer, believing that centering myself in God is the best foundation for my day. Then I pray for those near, whose names I know. Finally, pray for those across oceans, that I only hear about in great numbers.
Pondering prayer in these three layers may be helpful for you, too. Center yourself in God, and then like concentric circles moving out on water, let your care extend beyond yourself to those you can name and to those beyond your knowing.
In this way, our prayer includes those most destitute.
