LitBit Commentary – Rowan Williams on Prayer 4

LitBits Logo - 2

“Prayer is not a narrowly private activity; it is about your belonging in the body of Christ, and in the family of humanity.  If you understand what is going on when you pray, then the world changes.  And if in prayer you are gradually becoming attuned to the will and purpose of God, then the divine power that comes into you is bound to finds its outlet in this healing of relations.  That is not to say that you pray in order to be a nicer person, or so that justice and reconciliation will happen.  You pray because Christ is in you.  And if that is really happening, then the sort of things you can expect to see developing around you are justice and reconciliation.”

Rowan Williams, Being Christian, p.73
