The Presence of God

The Presence of God

The essence of Christianity can be boiled down
to one salient characteristic:
continual growth in a personal relationship
with Christ.
And that growth is fueled by prayer.
And prayer has three basic elements:
speaking to God,
listening to God
and resting in the presence of God.

The heart of prayer is genuine sharing.

Prayer is a pause that refreshes.

Prayer is not a private affair,
not something to which we selfishly cling.
Prayer leads us out of ourselves
and into solidarity with the whole human family
and all living creatures.
