The Fuck prayer

by Kim on January 25, 2018

When I write that my own situation in those months of pain and decision can be described as prayer, I do not only recall that during that time [of illness] I sometimes read the Psalms and they became my psalms, or that … I occasionally cried “Jesus” and that name was my prayer, but I mean that I also at times would shout “Fuck!” and that was no obscenity, but a most earnest prayerful utterance.
