In “Manifestation,” the poet Tania Runyan encounters prayer as something that hooks her “like a dendrite branch,” its movements slow, deliberate, and intimate.
In this issue of The Other Journal, our contributors address some of the hardships of finding our way in the transformative mystery that is prayer. They consider prayer in all its questions and practicalities. They carefully think through intercessory prayer and prayerful political theology and what it means to commune with God and one another. And they dance, laugh, and pray like fools.
