And if I have prophetic powers and understand all mysteries and all knowledge and if I have all faith so as to remove mountains but do not have love, I am nothing. —1 Corinthians 13:2

Very near the heart of Christian prayer is getting over the idea that God is somewhere a very, very long way off, so that we have to shout very loudly to be heard. On the contrary: God has decided to be an intimate friend and to make us part of his family, and we always pray on that basis. —Rowan Williams, Christian Century, July 23, 2014 “In the place of Jesus: Insights from Origen on prayer”

Be near O God. Be intimate friend who invites us in, who labors for us, who moves even mountains for the sake of love. Amen. —The Reverend Dr. Katie Snipes Lancaster
