Acting Out Prayer

“Anthony Bloom writes, “A prayer makes sense only if it is lived.  Unless they are ‘lived,’ unless life and prayer become completely interwoven, prayers become a sort of polite madrigal which you offer to God at moments when you are giving time to Him.”  The work of our hands and of our minds is acted out prayer, a love offering to the living God.  -Richard Foster in his book, Prayer

This week…

May our actions be full of love.
May our words be full of grace and truth.
May all of our moments—waking in the morning, drifting asleep at night, and all the moments in between—be lived as acts of prayer.
May we discover that in so living we understand what Paul meant when he wrote to the Thessalonians “pray without ceasing.”

Grace and peace be ours in abundance as we do.
