The Practice of the Presence of God

"There is not in the world a kind of life more sweet and delightful, than that of a continual conversation with God. Those only can comprehend it who practice and experience it." ... Brother Lawrence

To practice the presence of God in the Brother Lawrence tradition we walk before God simply, in faith, with humility, and with love. We engage in a continual, silent, and affectionate conversation with Our Father. Out of love for Him, we strive to do nothing and think nothing which may displease God.

    "Pay little attention to the beautiful words and subtle discourse of the wise of the earth. Woe to those who look to human knowledge to satisfy their curiosity. It is the Creator who teaches the truth and instructs the heart of the humble."

    Blessings Mattscottm,
    I feel the same way as you!! My soul was searching for something deeper than ordinary prayer. I read anything and everything on the contemplatives of the Church. St Theresa of Avila, St John of The Cross etc and altough it set my heart on fire it did not satisfy my soul. Then I came across Br Lawrence and that was it,the thing was, I was in a way already practising it but wasn;t aware of it!! I truly am "In Love" 24/7.
    How Good is God, and who am I to be worthy of such Grace?
    All the theology books in the world will not give you this simplicity and Oneness with God. I feel so Blessed that God draws me to this simple, beautiful way of life.

    "I will always continue to act purely for the love of God."
    ... Brother Lawrence

    Please share your experiences in Practicing The Presence of God.
    I wish you Heaven Mattscottm

    I've only just discovered Practicing the Presence of God and am in love with the directness and simplicity Brother Lawrence conveys in his moment to moment awareness of God. I feel compelled to try and follow in his footsteps
