Brother Lawrence: continual conversation with God

Thursday, April 19, 2012
    Commemoration of Alphege, Archbishop of Canterbury, Martyr, 1012
    ... I want you to stress these things, so that those who have trusted in God may be careful to devote themselves to doing what is good. These things are excellent and profitable for everyone. But avoid foolish controversies and genealogies and arguments and quarrels about the law, because these are unprofitable and useless.
    —Titus 3:8-9 (NIV)
    That we should establish ourselves in a sense of God’s presence by continually conversing with Him. That it was a shameful thing to quit His conversation to think of trifles and fooleries.
    ... Brother Lawrence (c.1605-1691), The Practice of the Presence of God, New York, Revell, 1895, p. 8 (see the book)
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, assist me to remain in prayer.
