CONTEMPLATIVE PRAYER

CONTEMPLATIVE PRAYER: MY SOUL IS ATHIRST FOR THE LIVING GOD
Mondays at Noon 
Led by The Reverend Marshall Craver

Contemplative prayer involves becoming aware of one’s deep longing for belonging, for unconditional love, for God. As the Psalmist writes, “my soul is athirst for the living God.” This holy longing, this thirst for God is created in us by the Spirit praying in us with sighs too deep for words. “Our hearts are restless until they rest in Thee.” (Augustine)

 

Contemplative prayer also involves the gift of our beginning to taste that which we thirst for, i.e., the experience of returning to God, resting in God, drinking deeply from the wellspring of God’s love for us, in us, and thru us for all people and creation. Come and join us as we practice a variety of Christian prayer forms, some ancient such as lectio divina and some more contemporary that point to and participate in the Living Water. All of this will be done within the context of community, either in person with mask and social distancing in the chapel of the Cathedral, or via zoom. Either way our personal roots of faith will be nurtured by those fellow pilgrims who are praying beside us.
