Jesus told us that prayer should never cease, yet how is it possible to do this? Wouldn’t we be in danger of performing our work negligently if we were constantly preoccupied with repeating words of prayer?
In Prayer in Action, Fr Andrzej Muszala follows his insightful book on Silent Prayer by exploring how a true understanding of prayer can help us to follow St Paul’s call to “Always be joyful, pray constantly” (1 Th 5:17). Examining the key relationships in each person’s life – those with God, with other persons, and with oneself, Fr Muszala describes how prayer is the action that allows all of them to flourish and empowers each person to actively live the Gospel.
“If constant prayer provides the ground our love for God springs from, then prayer in action has the same function: it enables us to give everything to God who has conquered our hearts with the arrow of his tender love.”
