This week, as prayers are offered for the Search Committee for a new Bishop for the Episcopal Diocese of Oklahoma, the following are witnesses about prayer from Anglican sources.


Sunday  And so we will never turn away from you; give us life, that we may call upon your name.

Psalm 80: 17


Amid the spiritual hunger of our times, when many, whose souls are starved by activism, are seeking guidance in the contemplation of God, a terrible judgment rests upon the priest who is unable to give help because her or she has ceased to be a man or woman of prayer.

Archbishop Michael Ramsey, “Jesus and the Church,” in The Charismatic Christ


Monday  Am I a God nearby, says the Lord, and not a God far off? Jeremiah 23:23


The world is full of jangling noises. You know that there are better melodies. But you will never transmit the heavenly music to others unless you yourselves are tuned into it, and that, once more, means giving to it careful and undivided attention during part of each day. Evelyn Underhill, On the Inner Life


Tuesday Is not my word like fire, says the Lord?  Jeremiah 23:29


Canst thou be warm, If thou keep away from the sun or the fire? Canst thou have any fire of love, if thou keep away from JESUS? 

Edward B. Pusey, Parochial Sermons, Chadwick, The Mind of the Oxford Movement


Wednesday Jesus said, “I have come to bring fire to the earth, and how I wish it were already kindled.”

Luke 12:49  (The bishop’s mitre is shaped as the Pentecostal tongues of fire upon the head, betokening

each bishop an apostle of Pentecost)


As a man or woman of prayer, s/he will help clergy and people to see their vocation in prayer and

practice it.  Michael Ramsey, “The Bishop,” in The Christian Priest Today


Thursday  Have nothing to do with godless and silly myths. Train yourselves in godliness; for while bodily training is of some value, godliness is of value in every way, as it holds promise for the present life and also for the life to come.  I Timothy 4:7-8


As speech is the organ of human society, and the means of human civilization, so is prayer the instrument of divine fellowship and divine training. John Henry Newman, Parochial Sermons, IV, in Owen Chadwick, The Mind of the Oxford Movement


Friday  I will love her and manifest myself to her.  John 14;21


For this is Charity; the immense expansion of the human personality effected by the love of God, weaving together the natural and supernatural powers of the soul, and filling them with its abundant life. Overflowing the barriers of preference, passing through all contrary appearances, it mediates the Divine pity and generosity to every mesh and corner of creation; and rests at last in God, Who is the life and love of every soul.  Evelyn Underhill, The House of the Soul


Saturday   Continue steadfastly in prayer, being watchful in it with thanksgiving. Colossians 4:2


Will you be faithful in prayer, and in the study of Holy Scripture, that you may have the mind of Christ?

The Book of Common Prayer, “The Ordination of a Bishop,” The Examination


Responsive Psalm:  Psalm 103:1-8  Bless the Lord O my soul, and all that is within me, bless his holy name.

Song: O, let it freely burn, till earthly passion turn to dust and ashes in its heat consuming

Inviting the bell to sound: Listen, listen, this wonderful sound calls us to the Fire of Prayer.
