Daily Prayer Helps and Hints
Pastor Esget posted some of his notes at a workshop he has given on how to use the Treasury of Daily Prayer. Very useful! Check it out. I particularly love the advice Pr. Esget gives, and other pastors are giving and the advice the Treasury itself offers: if you miss a day, don’t beat yourself up and give up. Remember the words from Luke’s Gospel: “Jesus told his disciples a parable to show them that they should pray and not give up.” (Luke 18:1). By the way, if you have been noticing an uptick in posts on this blog about prayer and the devotional life, you have noticed correctly. I’ve been studying and researching Lectio Divina for a number of months and will soon be putting some thoughts down about it and about how Lutheranism has the best approach to Lectio Divina and has the best theological resources for truly Christ-centered prayer and meditation on the Scriptures. Does that surprise you?
