Prayer…40 days

24 Mar

“40 days of Prayer” study is a tapestry of scripture, concepts, questions, inspiration, connections, context.  Prayer may be music, song, a long walk without the iPod.

Prior to this season’s study “40 days of Prayer” my most intensely focused prayers came during knitting prayer shawls.  Coincidentally, one new shawl by Elfcroft is waiting for the pockets to be sewn on.

Prayer is not only a personal experience but a universal, global experience across the ages.

“Joy is prayer –

Joy is strength –

Joy is love –

Joy is a net of love by which you can catch souls.”

Mother Teresa of Calcutta, Albanian-born Roman Catholic missionary (1910-1997)

The shortest of prayers are potent and powerful.
