Exploring the Way of Love: Prayer

by The Rev. Br. Richard Edward Helmer, BSG

From the October Perspective,
the newsletter of Church of Our Saviour:

Beginning last year at General Convention, our Presiding Bishop, Michael Curry, began laying out a vision for renewal across the Church. In longstanding Christian tradition, renewal often involves returning -- returning to our roots as Christians. Bishop Curry's approach summons up the very heart of Jesus' teaching -- the Way of Love -- and a very ancient way of approaching Jesus' Way through a Rule of Life.

This is the fourth in a series of articles on this structured way to practice a Jesus-Centered Life, and I encourage you to go and learn more about renewing this intentional commitment in our dail life as baptized Christians and as a parish community online here.

Prayer

"Spend time every day -- some real time in real prayer." -Presiding Bishop Michael Curry

No activity is more mysterious, powerful, and yet accessible to us than prayer. Sounds like a bold statement in a secular age like ours, but anyone who has experienced prayer in any form learns that prayer changes everything -- from meditation to reading the poetic words of the Book of Common Prayer, from offering up our souls amongst the redwoods, to unconsciously uttering "Oh God!" in a moment of crisis for ourselves or others.
