Profiting Prayer Anyone?

“Profiting Prayer”

“Continuing Contemplative Prayer ‘on the fly’ throughout one’s day permits busy people to obey Holy Spirit’s command in 1 Thess. 5:17-18.”

2014-01-16 – Came to mind while reading ““The Celtic Way of Evangelism: How Christianity Can Reach the West…Again”, by George G. Hunter III, which I review here.

When the author was discussing Patricks “Episodic Contemplative Prayer” teaching I realized that was the approach to prayer which I felt led to adopt years ago.

I changed how I prayed because of the dryness of the approach I’d been taught by the parachurch groups in which I participated …especially Paul Henderson’s Canadian “Athletes in Action” which I always felt was ‘worksy’.
