10 entry points into prayer

10 entry points into prayer
by Joel Howard

to sit, not leave
to kneel, not shake clenched fists
to lower eyes, not compare with others
open palms, not a tightened grip
calm, not disgust or denial
to weep, not lie or ignore
to smile, not downplay
to remember, not forget or ignore
space, not a busy to-do
permission, not fear and anger
