Prayer brings together what we in our ignorance too often separate.
Prayer that follows the path of the embodiment of God joins together Divinity and humanity, spirit and matter, sacred and secular, mystical encounter with God and walking with a friend. Anyone whose praying perpetuates some sanitary separation between all these things isn’t walking the same path God-in-Christ has walked.
With every step the Beloved takes, there’s a deeper penetration of the Eternal into the temporal, and there’s a fuller incorporation of the temporal into the Eternal. That’s why we pray, “Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven.”
Heaven and earth are one in Christ; Divinity permeating and pervading not only our humanity, but all creation as well.
