This daily post is designed to help you live into our New Room Society covenant of practicing daily prayer together. Below is today’s daily practice. If you missed the overview on day one, visit Week 20: Simplicity.
Thursday: What God is Impressed With
Carmelite monk and author of The Practice of the Presence of God, Brother Lawrence remarked:
“Never tire of doing even the smallest things for [God], because He isn’t impressed so much with the dimensions of our work as with the love in which it is done. And we should not be discouraged if we fail in the beginning. The practice would eventually cause our efforts to become a pleasure habit that we would do without thinking….
We should simply develop an attitude of faith, hope, and love. We need not be concerned about anything else. It simply is not important, and should only be regarded as the means of getting to the final goal of being entirely lost in the love of God.”
What simple act of ministry will you undertake today, with a heart entirely lost in the love of God?
