Brother Lawrence: continually praying

Sunday, August 23, 2015
    Commemoration of Rose of Lima, Contemplative, 1617
    Seek the LORD while he may be found; call on him while he is near.
    —Isaiah 55:6 (NIV)
    In order to form a habit of conversing with God continually, and referring all we do to Him, we must first apply to Him with some diligence; but that after a little care we should find His love inwardly excite us to it without any difficulty.
    ... Brother Lawrence (c.1605-1691), The Practice of the Presence of God, New York, Revell, 1895, Second Conversation, p. 10 (see the book)
    See also Isa. 55:6; Ps. 4:3; 32:6; 119:150-151; Matt. 28:20; Acts 17:27-28; 2 Cor. 6:2; Eph. 1:22-23
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, You hear me when I call to You.
