I was looking over some material on prayer we are going to be reading in our class at church and came across this statement from Don Saliers,
“Prayer is essential to ‘the call to holiness at the heart of the Christian gospel,’ Don Saliers has reminded us. Indeed, it ‘constitutes the focal point of Christian existence: Christ’s own life is one of active prayer and prayerful action. It is thus fitting to speak of his whole life as a prayer — a continual self-offering in love and obedience to the Father.’”
(from “Prayer” issue of Christian Reflection )
Over the years I have read a number of books on prayer and seen many, many quotes about prayer, but recently I asked myself a new question, “What is the best advice I have ever received on prayer?”
It’s one thing to read what people write about prayer but is another to hear some word of advice you know you have to take to heart. How about you? What is the best advice you have ever received on prayer?
If you are inclined to share your answer with me, I would love to hear from you. Just reply to this email if you want to share your answer with me.
