Gossip: hard to pray as Jesus did

Wednesday, March 25, 2020
    Feast of the Annunciation of our Lord to the Virgin Mary
    One day Jesus was praying in a certain place. When he finished, one of his disciples said to him, “Lord, teach us to pray, just as John taught his disciples.”
    —Luke 11:1 (NIV)
    Be pleased to hear all these good people, who can pray [the Lord’s Prayer] to Thee so fast. And, in Thy mercy, may some of Thy grace to them overflow to me, whom Thou hast made too slow of mind to speak such august words as these so rapidly with any understanding.
    ... A. J. Gossip (1873-1954), In the Secret Place of the Most High, New York: Charles Scribner’s Sons, 1947, p. 57 (see the book)
    See also Luke 11:1-4; Matt. 6:9-13; Rom. 8:26
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, lead me to pray in the Spirit.
