A Prayer for Faith in Anxious Times

In this time of high anxiety, I wanted to share a prayer from one of my favorite theologians, Soren Kierkegaard:

“Teach me, O God, not to torture myself, not to make a martyr out of myself through stifling reflection, but rather teach me to breathe deeply in faith.” [1]

May you breath deeply in faith.
