supplicate \ ˈsə-plə-ˌkāt - to make a humble entreaty, to pray to God
I made this work, Supplication, in 2016. Some of you have seen it in a few past local juried exhibits. I am grateful.
Lately the piece has become louder, more urgent. More 2020. MORE VITAL. The piece is still being completed.
Consider these words. Please pray them back to God, their author:
…We are hard pressed on every side, but not crushed; perplexed, but not in despair; persecuted, but not abandoned; struck down, but not destroyed… - 2 Corinthians 4: 8-9
…Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus… - Philippians 4:6-7
…For I am convinced that neither life nor death, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord. - Romans 8: 38-39
Jesus, the reason for my hope, my peace, my joy. May He be yours too.
