Answering Your Letters

15 Jul

Dear Jim,

Most Christians have a devotional routine.  What’s yours?

Darren

Darren,

That’s an interesting question which I’m happy to answer.  I started the practice long ago of following – as best I can – a daily devotional ‘cycle’ based on the Presbyterian Lectionary.  And I divide it into two parts:

In the morning I read the morning Lectionary passages in the Zürcher Bibel (so I keep up on German- operating on the old assumption, if you don’t use it you’ll lose it).  And in the evening (usually about an hour or so before I go to bed) I read the evening Lectionary passages in Hebrew or Greek (depending of course on whether the passage is from the Old or New Testament)(and for the same reason- to keep up in the languages).

When it comes to prayer I really don’t have much of a routine at all unless you consider this a routine: I pray for whatever or whoever comes to mind.  Sometimes I pray that God bless and aid; and sometimes I pray what the old timers call imprecatory prayers.

That’s pretty much it.  Hope this helps.

Jim

    Jim, “Presbyterian Lectionary”? I knew you were deep down more of a “churchman”! 😉 Just as I always am a historical catholic & reformed Anglican. There is no escape from the real historical Christ, nor His Reformed/Reforming Church!
