Laramie, Wyoming

The Cemetery is a Praying Place: Whenever we stroll through a Christian burial ground, we are reminded of the advice we get in I Thessalonians: "Pray without ceasing." Praying hands, large (as here) or small, are among the most frequent icons of faith on grave markers. They are the hands of Jesus praying in the Garden of Gethsemene; they are the hands of the deceased delivering a final plea for mercy; they are the hands of loved ones left behind in an eternal prayerful pose. Green Hill Cemetery. [2013]
