Why do you suppose I chose the phrase "Pray Always. Laugh Often. Grow in Christ." to be the logo for Spirituality Classroom?
Each of those short sentences means a lot to me in the way that I maintain my own spiritual wellness. So let’s take a look at each of them. Perhaps you'll glean meaning from them too.
Does it seem possible or impossible to you – to ALWAYS be at prayer? If you’re thinking, “No, it’s not possible, then why would St. Paul tell us to do exactly that – to pray always? Yet which of us, even on good days, manages to pray all the way through any set of waking hours, even when we haven't been hurt badly?
Spiritual abuse can cripple our faith at a deep and basic level, affects the health or dis-ease of our prayer life. When it seems as though we can’t pray any more, then is it absurd to talk about praying always? I think not.
