"True, whole prayer is nothing but love."
But eating is not just about taking nourishment. Most often, I eat alone. However, there are occasions when I want to share a meal. I don't want to have a meal for one, a meal that just nourishes my immediate desires. It is at these times when food is not just about satisfying physical hunger. Rather, I dine with others because I want fellowship and connection. At those tables, I am welcomed, I am loved and I am a part of another's life.
On this, the National Day of Prayer, we are called to sit together at the banquet table. We are called to hunger for fellowship, for connection and for each other.
Today, let us pray, let us feast, and let us connect to each other through the God who loves us.
"To clasp the hands in prayer is the beginning of an uprising against the disorder of the world."
