In a prayerful way repeat the text below several times.

O my Strength,
it is you to whom I turn,
for you are my refuge,
the God who shows me love.
— Psalm 59

Sit with the photo and "read" it slowly

Ask yourself, What do the photo and text say to me?
What feeling or thought or word do they evoke?
What do I want to say to God through this photo and text?
What do you believe is God’s message for you today as you reflect on this photo and text?
