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’.

False Evidence Appearing Real

F-E-A-R of Time with God

“The primary psychological drug of the 21st Century seems to be our obsession with and absorption in electronic media. Almost every possible waking moment, it seems, we invite the unbridled clatter of the noisy world into the inner sanctum of our souls. In so doing, we have become strangers to silence and solitude, producing in us a callow and parched spirituality.” ~ Dwight Hill (1936-1914) U.S. Navigator Marketplace Missionary, Blogger (Founder: “Fax/Facts of the Matter” http://goo.gl/bI5o02)

The current, celebrated site of Jesus’ trial before Pontius Pilate, like so many religious sites in Israel, doesn’t have a particularly strong historical pedigree.

It was designated as the court where Jesus was taken only in the 18th century.

Archeologists and historians now agree on the real site and it’s open to the public.
