Brother Lawrence: business and prayer

Tuesday, October 18, 2022
    Feast of Luke the Evangelist
    And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests. With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the saints.
    —Ephesians 6:18 (NIV)
    “The time of business,” said he, “does not with me differ from the time of prayer, and in the noise and clatter of my kitchen, while several persons are at the same time calling for different things, I possess God in as great tranquillity as if I were upon my knees at the blessed sacrament.”
    ... Brother Lawrence (c.1605-1691), The Practice of the Presence of God, New York, Revell, 1895, Fourth Conversation, p. 20 (see the book)
    See also Eph. 6:18; Ps. 27:8; 80:18; Luke 18:1; John 4:22-24; 15:16; Rom. 8:15; 12:12; Eph. 2:18; Phil. 4:6; 1 Thess. 5:17; 1 Tim. 2:8; Heb. 10:19-22; 1 John 5:14
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, You are by my side every moment.
