Prayer, The Daily Order
May 26, 2006 Length: 1:00:24
We begin a series on prayer which is the center of the life of the Orthodox Christian. Prayer is our connection to God who is our life. It is to be like our breathing, without ceasing. The Church provides a deep wealth of writings about prayer, but it also provides us with a daily order of services that structures the entire day around prayer. We are able to pray in the same ways the Jews prayed at set hours of the day that we see in the book of Acts. In this program Steve and Bill begin a discussion of the daily order of prayer services and then next week will move into "personal prayer" and a discussion of "The Jesus Prayer", the single most important prayer of our spiritual life.
"I am the pastor of a Baptist church. Yet, I don't start my day without meditation, prayer, and scripture with this wonderful music playing. I have a deep admiration for Orthodoxy as you are the original church and gave us the precious jewel of the Holy Bible."
