Praying the Ordinary

Do not forget that the value and interest of life is not so much to do conspicuous things . . . as to do ordinary things with the perception of their enormous value. – Teilhard de Chardin

Richard Foster writes that “prayers arising out of the context of the family are perhaps the most common expression of Praying the Ordinary.”

Foster prays

Almighty, most holy, most high God, thank you for paying attention to small things.  Thank you for valuing the insignificant.  Thank you for being interested in the lilies of the field and the birds of the air.  Thank you for caring about me.

In Jesus- name. — Amen.

    We were wondering if we could have permission to use this photo on the cover of our programs for a show that we’re doing. You can let me know by emailing me at: newmancenter@socsj.org. Thank you very much! God bless!
