Grounded in Prayer

THANKS SO MUCH for the article "City Lights" by Edward J. Farrell
(January-February 2000).

THANKS SO MUCH for the article "City Lights" by Edward J. Farrell (January-February 2000). Being a contemplative who works in a large city corporate setting, I certainly relate with this article.

The opportunities to minister to Christ abound in the city and in our workplaces. It is so true that we need to be grounded in prayer—yet not only equipped from our morning prayer time but also from a ceaseless prayer and love throughout the day that helps us be alert to the opportunities before us no matter how seemingly simple or difficult.

Sojourners Comment Community Covenant

I will express myself with civility, courtesy, and respect for every member of the Sojourners online community, especially toward those with whom I disagree, even if I feel disrespected by them. (Romans 12:17-21)

I will express my disagreements with other community members' ideas without insulting, mocking, or slandering them personally. (Matthew 5:22)

I will not exaggerate others' beliefs nor make unfounded prejudicial assumptions based on labels, categories, or stereotypes. I will always extend the benefit of the doubt. (Ephesians 4:29)

I will hold others accountable by clicking "report" on comments that violate these principles, based not on what ideas are expressed but on how they're expressed. (2 Thessalonians 3:13-15)

I understand that comments reported as abusive are reviewed by Sojourners staff and are subject to removal. Repeat offenders will be blocked from making further comments. (Proverbs 18:7)
