Worship this Sunday, October 2: Wait, we finally get to Prayer in week THREE? Yes! After taking a deep dive into Commitment and Growth, then we get around to our practices and experiences of prayer. Thurman writes, “Prayer is not only the participation in communication with God in the encounter of religious experience, but it is also the “readying” of the spirit for such communication. It is the total process of quieting down and to that extent must not be separated from meditation. Perhaps, as important as prayer itself, is the “readying” of the spirit for the experience.” Let’s discuss this phenomenon of preparing oneself to pray, which is, in and of itself, a kind of prayer.
