Brother Lawrence: not for a special time

Wednesday, July 22, 2020
    Feast of Mary Magdalen, Apostle to the Apostles
    But Jesus often withdrew to lonely places and prayed.
    —Luke 5:16 (NIV)
    He said: that it was a great delusion to think that the times of prayer ought to differ from other times; that we are as strictly obliged to adhere to God by action in the time of action, as by prayer in the season of prayer.
    ... Brother Lawrence (c.1605-1691), The Practice of the Presence of God, New York, Revell, 1895, Fourth Conversation, p. 16 (see the book)
    See also Luke 5:16; Ps. 122:6-7; Eccl. 3:1; 1 Thess. 5:17; Heb. 10:19-22
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, weave prayer throughout my life.
