Underhill: the use of formal prayer

Monday, March 4, 2019
    Commemoration of Felix, Bishop, Apostle to the East Angles, 647
Accept, O LORD, the willing praise of my mouth,
    and teach me your laws.
    —Ps. 119:108 (NIV)
    Formal prayer is a practical device, not a spiritual necessity. It makes direct suggestions to our souls: it reminds us of realities which we always tend to forget.
    ... Evelyn Underhill (1875-1941), Concerning the Inner Life, London: Methuen, 1927, p. 61 (see the book)
    See also Ps. 119:108; 116:17-19; Isa. 12:1-2; Hos. 14:2; Eph. 5:19-20; Col. 3:16; Heb. 13:15; 1 Pet. 4:11
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, You alone fill the liturgy with meaning.
