Today I added the following excerpt as an ‘update’ to my Categories/Posts “Pray On The Potty” and “Dry Prayer And Monkey Chatter”. The full article from which the excerpt was taken can be found at http://utmost.org/thinking-of-prayer-as-jesus-taught/ . Here goes:
“The correct concept is to think of prayer as the breath in our lungs and the blood from our hearts. Our blood flows and our breathing continues “without ceasing”; we are not even conscious of it, but it never stops.
Prayer is not an exercise, it is the life of the saint. Beware of anything that stops the offering up of prayer. “Pray without ceasing…”— maintain the childlike habit of offering up prayer in your heart to God all the time.”
End of excerpt. The “pray without ceasing” quote came from 1 Thessalonians 5:17.
