I did early morning prayers this morning when I got up. Then I did the morning office from the BCP when I got to work.

I'm in class the next 2 weeks from 8am to noon. Keeping my regular prayer schedule will be challenge. I'm hopeful that I'll be able to stick with it, though. Please pray for me.

Peace,

I've been mostly in prayer the past few weeks. Amelia has been asking for Bible verses to help her through this time with her mimaw so we have been reading the Bible together too.

Thanks for all your kind words during this time. I know God will use this too! Some days, I feel totally at peace and other days, I am a wreck. Don't know what I am today! Thoughts of my mom have taken over much of my days but I am not letting this define me or my life.

Yay! I have internet at my house ... finally. I'll spare you the store of the long road we walked to make this day possible. :)

I have found the Psalms and praying the Jesus prayer very helpful these past few days.

I do have a question for you all. What does prayer look like in the evening time for you? I am trying fixed-hour prayer three times a day and I am the most inconsistent in the evening times. Any suggestions?

Tim Suttle said...

Yes! Scott! Thank you - prayer in the evening is really inconsistent for me, too. We pray at the evening meal, but that is my only consistent ritual. For years I've been doing the vespers service at 4:30 or so - getting it in before I go home because once I get there it becomes impossible to pray consistently. Compline is my worst one, and seems the easiest to do. But my bedtime routine is not focused on prayer... just sleep!

I did the early morning office when I got up & the BCP office just now.

Spent time in prayer and confession this morning. Then allowed God to fill me within the Psalms and Revelation. Needed to find peace from my frustrations, and He was faithful to meet me there.

I did 5 offices (even Compline) yesterday & was a total grump all day... go figure! Pray for my back, It seems to be getting worse.

I prayed the early morning office when I woke this morning. I just did the BCP morning office & I'm off to class.

I did early morning prayers when I got up & did the moring office just now. I lapsed on prayers yesterday - didn't get to midday or vespers. But today will be different.

I'm learning a lot about holiness this week in class. I'm more convinced than ever that we must learn to order our time in such a way that we continually pray and are in the word.

Peace,

Got up early this morning and did the early morning office. Just completed the BCP office. Our worship service will by my Midday prayers. It's going to be a great day!
