3 Ways to Pray the Ordinary

Source: Wikipedia / Albrecht Dürer – Praying Hands, 1508

“Many of us today live in a kind of inner apartheid. We segregate out a small corner of pious activities and then can make no spiritual sense out of the rest of our lives. We have become so accustomed to this way of living that we fail to see the contradiction in it. We overcome this modern heresy by praying the ordinary. We do this in 3 ways, 1st by turning ordinary experiences of life into prayer, 2nd by seeing God in the ordinary experiences of life, and 3rd by praying throughout the ordinary experiences of life.”
– Richard J Foster, “Prayer: Finding the Heart’s True Home”
