Beschreibung

David Johnson asks, ",How did early Quakers pray?", and draws on early Quaker and other writings to answer this question. A Quaker prayer life arises from a life of continuing daily attentiveness. The first generation of Quakers followed a covenant with God, based on assidious obedience to the promptings of the Inward Light. This process did not require the established churches, priests or liturgies. Quaker prayer then became a practice of patient waiting in silence. Prayer is a conscious choice to seek God, in whatever form that Divine Presence speaks to each of us, moment to moment. The difficulties we experience in inward prayer are preparation for our outward lives. Each time we return to the centre in prayer we are modeling how to live our lives, each time we dismiss the internal intrusions we are strengthening that of God within us and denying the role of the Self, every time we turn to prayer and to God we are seeking an increase in the measure of Light in our lives.

Prayer is a conscious choice to seek God, in whatever form that Divine Presence speaks to each of us, moment to moment. The difficulties we experience in inward prayer are preparation for our outward lives. Each time we return to the centre in prayer we are modeling how to live our lives.
