What I Learned
I have learned a great deal in this experiment. I pay attention more to my surroundings and how God is touching my every moment. I consciously take deep breaths throughout the day, allowing a cloak of relaxation to gently cover my soul. And I hear God and my true self more clearly, not all the chatty voices of the world.
Want to learn more about what is called Praying the Hours, the Divine Office/Hours, or the Liturgy of the Hours?
The book I used through this journey was:
Seven Sacred Pauses by Macrina Wiederkehr.
Other books that you may find useful are:
Robert Benson’s Venite – a Book of Daly Prayer
The Divine Hours – Phyllis Tickle
The Rhythm of God’s Grace – Arthur Paul Boers
The Internet offers many resources:
Even Twitter has members who “tweet” reminders and prayers:
God awaits us at any hour, any minute. His invitation to be with Him. Pause and spend time with the Lord.
