- The instruction of Paul to pray unceasingly
- The contemplative nature of this prayer of the heart when repeated and repeated throughout one's days and nights.
Miss Eagle commends this post to you, dear Reader.
This post makes the connection, which so many lovers of Jesus have found, between the contemplative activity surrounding the Jesus Prayer and the working out of the love of Christ in service to humanity.
Contemplative prayer is neither quietism nor pietism. It is not for sissies nor for wimps. It is worked through in action, through a return to the market-place, through human intercourse. In this way, both prayer and activity become a contemplative activity for the love of the Lord Jesus Christ.
