Christian Quotation of the Day

March 24, 2007
Feast of Oscar Romero, Archbishop of San Salvador, Martyr, 1980
Commemoration of Paul Couturier, Priest, Ecumenist, 1953
    I desire then that in every place the men should pray, lifting holy hands without anger or quarreling...
    -- 1 Timothy 2:8 (ESV)

    In our praying, we should speak to God about Himself—that is praise; or about His gifts—that is thanksgiving; or about other people—that is intercession; or about our sins—that is confession and penitence; or about our needs—that is petition. Prayer has five fingers, like a hand, and each in turn must be pointed to God, that our prayer may be full and complete.
    ... F. W. Kates (b.1920)

Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, I lift my hands to you in prayer.
