Note: This week’s New Every Morning reflections are structured differently to follow the format of our featured title Holy Listening, which offers 40 daily meditations with scripture verses for lectio divina, a yoga pose, a breath prayer, and reflection questions.
What makes you weep? Over what parts of your life are you mourning or grieving? How can you invite your entire self into that process? How does God protect you as you mourn?
—Whitney R. Simpson, Holy Listening with Breath, Body, and the Spirit (Upper Room Books, 2016)
Today’s Breath Prayer
Inhale: O Holy One,

Join the conversation.
Jesus began to weep.
—John 11:35 (NRSV)
