In Constant Prayer by Robert Benson

February 20, 2011 1 comment

Do you want to experience the spiritual part of life more deeply?

Then I highly recommend this book.

I was raised in a non-liturgical, Christian tradition, which emphasized spontaneous prayers of the heart.  Although there is great value in this form of spiritual communication, Mr. Benson gives a clear introduction to the discipline of reading or reciting the “daily office” and “praying the hours.”

Just as devout Muslims and Jews pray at set hours every day, so also many Christians throughout the past 2000 years have prayed at set times throughout the day.  Some liturgial denominations continue to support this practice, but it is a lost art in most contemporary Christian churches.

If you would like to learn more about some prayer books available for devotional use, or the tactics necessary to find time to begin this practice, or anything else related to using scripted prayers to develop your spiritual sensitivities, then pick up a copy of this book!

Disclaimer: I received a free copy of this book from the publisher in return for my unbiased recommendation.
