Agony is something we humans all experience at some point in our lives. The best prayers are often born in that place, unrehearsed, raw, without inhibition, revealing excruciating pain and despair with words of fire that bypass the human tongue and ear.

I imagine God standing there in front of us, stunned, arms wide opened as divine hands are nailed in an eternally opened invitation to a transcendent embrace that is no escape, but an experience of perfect Presence.
