In This Hope: Breathing For Haiti

in this hope
breathing for haiti

It is in this cloud, we find ourselves;

smelling the dead and wondering why

there were rocks and homes and lives that moved

from stable places to dark below

It is in this fray, we find ourselves;

hurrying to aid you, poor as we are

hoping we can feed you, water you, breathe for you

before you suffocate from pain

It is in this hope, some, we live;

that our best efforts, prayers and acts

are fragrant air in worlds unseen

and delivering all a new tomorrow.

In this hope, we breathe for you;

we your family, your lungs tired

we will take in our rich oxygen

and fill your lungs if we can.

Sheltering Mercy and Endless Grace help us rediscover the rich treasures of the Psalms—through free-verse prayer renderings of their poems and hymns—as a guide to personal devotion and meditation. Sheltering Mercy helps the reader pray Psalms 1-75; Endless Grace leads in prayer through Psalms 76-150.

The church has always used the Psalms as part of its prayer life, and they have inspired countless other prayers. Each book contains 75 prayers drawn from the Book of Psalms, providing lyrical sketches of what authors Ryan Smith and Dan Wilt have seen, heard, and felt while sojourning there. Each prayer is a response to the Psalms written in harmony with Scripture. These prayers help us quiet our hearts before God and welcome us into a safe place amid the storms of life.

These artful, poetic, and classic devotional books are a perfect gift, and feature compelling stunning illustrations and hardcover binding, offering a fresh way to reflect on and pray the Psalms. Co-written with Ryan Whitaker Smith, Brazos Publishing.
