When did prayer become an action and not a lifestyle?
I can see the logic in stopping, taking a moment, taking a knee, bowing a head, facing the direction of a holy site, retreating for a short or extended period of time. But, all that implies a stopping of sorts.
That’s short of “praying without ceasing,” a pretty tall order, given the exhortation to the Thessalonian church.
I’m thinking the church today is giving short shrift to the radical concept of prayer and the idea that it should permeate life.
I’m trying to wrap my head around that.
