Foster: the center of prayer

Monday, August 15, 2022
    One of those days Jesus went out to a mountainside to pray, and spent the night praying to God.
    —Luke 6:12 (NIV)
    In the beginning we are indeed the subject and the center of our prayers. But in God’s time and in God’s way a Copernican revolution takes place in our heart. Slowly, almost imperceptibly, there is a shift in our center of gravity. We pass from thinking of God as part of our life to the realization that we are part of his life. Wondrously and mysteriously God moves from the periphery of our prayer experience to the center.
    ... Richard J. Foster (b. 1942), Prayer: Finding the Heart’s True Home, HarperCollins, 1992, p. 15 (see the book)
    See also Luke 6:12; Ps. 42:8; Matt. 6:6; John 14:16; Rom. 8:26; 1 Thess. 5:17-18; Jude 1:20
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, teach me of Yourself in my prayer.
