So He Himself often withdrew into the wilderness and prayed.
Very soon, I will have another blog. My church has decided to have a website and I find Wordpress.com an effective and cost-effective tool. Plus, the response to the Pamunkey Baptist Association site has been positive as well. I will post my sermon notes here and on the upcoming site. But, I will continue making a chronicle of my Orthodox journey here.
(thesis) It is easy to see the value of morning and nightly prayers
(antithesis) Too many challenges arise during the day for us to rely on these prayers alone
(propositional statement) Like Christ, we are to get away from our daily task and deliberately pray alone as much as possible
(relevant question) What are the advantages of such prayer?
(points) Praying often keeps us:
- in line with God’s will
- from getting caught up with the crowd
(conclusion) We can’t all be monastics. God blesses our efforts.
