Pray for Strangers

benchWyatt Massey writes for America magazine:

I sit alone on the bench, outside of a café as I wait for a friend. The lines on each passing face, the way they hold their hands, the postures they keep—it all tells a story. They are strangers, but I fill in details of their lives with imagination and prayer.

His brief essay, “Prayers of a Wondering Mind,” beautifully tells of one way to pray for strangers when we’re alone.
