Shema Adonai Listen God
Koli Eqra When My voice calls you
V’ Haneni That you should have compassion on me
V’anaeni That you answer You answer me
Elizabeth ponders the risk of calling out to God in difficult times, and even more risky, waiting for the answer.

Perhaps, if we let ourselves be open enough, God will respond with compassion and grace.
