Taking Prayer into the Day
(true or false) The joy of prayer - communing with God - is
essential to what it means to be Christian.
True because without prayer, there is no true relationship
with him, and no deep delight in who he is
"We pray personally, in secret and on the move, and we pray corporately, resisting the privatizing of our prayers, not just by asking others to pray for us but especially by having others pray with us." (David Mathis)
Prayer - A Poem by George Herbert
(1593-1633)
PRAYER the Churches banquet, Angels age,
Gods breath in man returning to his birth,
The soul in paraphrase, heart in pilgrimage,
The Christian plummet sounding heav'n and earth;
Engine against th' Almightie, sinner's towre,
Reversed thunder, Christ-side-piercing spear,

Softnesse, and peace, and joy, and love, and blisse,
The six daies world-transposing in an houre,
A kinde of tune, which all things heare and fear;
Exalted Manna, gladnesse of the best,
Heaven in ordinarie, man well drest,
The milkie way, the bird of Paradise,
Church-bels beyond the stars heard, the souls bloud,
The land of spices, something understood.
