Prayer through song

Published 11 March 2017

In our L’Arche homes here in Chicago, as well as L’Arche homes all over the world, we often pray together through music.  Core member, Mike Marino, chose this song, Touchdown Jesus by Tim McGraw for you to pray with today.  It speaks of a celebration of moments of dependence on God, recognizing that “coming home” to Jesus is a part of all of our spiritual journeys.

Henri Nouwen says, “Jesus, in whom the fullness of God dwells, has become our home…Home is the place where that first love dwells and speaks gently to us…Prayer is the most concrete way to make our home in God.”
