Let’s imagine that it’s your birthday…There’s a big box all gift-wrapped that you are anxious to open…You tear at the paper and just can’t wait to find out what’s inside. In today’s reading, Isaiah wants God to rip open the heavens like a gift box, and come on down to earth!
Another way to look at this: When something happens that “rips” at your heart, think of the good that can happen. God is there to have more love flow out from you, as though your heart were like heaven!
Take a ride with Isaiah as you find the energy of your prayer being swept along by his!
Here is a sample of a seven-syllable breath-prayer
You the potter; we the clay v. 8
