Welcome to Prayer Threads.

Life is a tangled mess of so many things that it can be hard to hold each thread. Most of the invitations here are to notice the threads all jumbled together. We sit with the questions and treasure the wonders just by paying attention.

Prayer Threads is spiritual direction in your inbox encouraging you to delight and cherish all the Holy Threads that God might offer.

If you choose to become a paid subscriber, you will receive the additional gifts of worship resources for personal devotion and communal prayer created through Worship Threads. Paid subscribers will also find retreats and other seasonal resources to explore the tangled threads of this life.

Subscribe to get full access to the newsletter and website. You won’t have to worry about missing anything. Every new invitation of this newsletter goes directly to your inbox. I’m so glad you are here.
