    Ireland: When All We Have Is Silence

    Content warning: This episode deals with difficult topics including baby loss.

    How do we pray when all we have is silence? 

    Hannah and Brian are joined by Lucy Hill, the National Director for 24-7 Prayer in Ireland. In this wise and vulnerable conversation, Lucy opens up about times of profound loss in her life. How do we meet with God in the midst of suffering? And how do we hold space for those who are grieving? 

    Healing is needed for nations as well as individuals, and Lucy, Brian and Hannah move on to discuss the nations of Ireland and Northern Ireland, reflecting on the legacy of pain and the hope for awakening in this context. How do we pray for a nation? What does it look like to truly love your neighbour?
