Prayer and the mysteries of Christ
Feb 05, 2009 by Howard Baker | 0 Comments
[The mysteries of Christ] can be realized only when prayer becomes our supreme concern, our main preoccupation, which outweighs all other cares; our duty, which challenges all other duties; our pleasure, which surpasses every other pleasure. We would then pray at all times, in all circumstances, in all places, in all conditions. We would pray in an insatiable hunger for constant contact with Christ. In all this we would be urged by his words, deeds, actions, and character-as he said, "Learn from me" (Mt 11:29). -- Orthodox Prayer Life, p.33.
