praying through shadows

Lord, we invite you into the
shadowlands of our hearts.
Reveal to us the ways in which we
continue to turn away from You.
Release us from the shame of our
betrayals and our perceived failures.
Help us run toward Your mercy
and repent of our sins.
In these holy days, transform us and
conform our hearts to Yours.
Create in us a humble spirit,
ready to love and serve You.
Make us new.
Make us one in You.

Rakhi McCormick is a first-generation Indian-American and convert from Hinduism who found her way into the Church and a career in ministry through a series of invitations, and more than a few leaps of faith – sometimes kicking and screaming. Having worked in a variety of ministries at the national, diocesan, and local level, Rakhi has discovered that her greatest passion is speaking light into darkness, wherever that might be found, and however the Holy Spirit leads. She has a heart for the underdog, the overlooked, and the broken. A devoted advocate for God’s mercy and justice, Rakhi uses these inspirations to shape her writing, speaking, and artwork. She is the owner of Rakstar Designs and currently resides in the Metro Detroit area with her husband and three children. When not playing wife, mother, or minister, you can find Rakhi singing, reading, scrolling Instagram, and making beautiful things (and messes) with coffee in hand.
