Gossip: not praying

Saturday, September 10, 2011
    I say to myself, “The LORD is my portion; therefore I will wait for him.”
    —Lamentations 3:24 (NIV)
    There is this real difficulty that the very beauty of a [pastoral or written] prayer may keep one from praying. The mind is lost in admiring the perfection of the English, or the loveliness of the thought, is listening, agreeing, commending, but not praying.
    ... A. J. Gossip (1873-1954), In Christ’s Stead, London: Hodder and Stoughton, 1925, p. 47 (see the book)
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, keep my thoughts on You.
