Today’s readings point out the two main elements in a life of prayer.
The first element consists of putting ourselves in God’s presence. The first reading spells that out for us by reminding us that “God is not far from any of us, for in him we live and move and have our being.”
The second element consists in asking to to see things the way God sees them. The second reading spells that out for us by telling us that God’s Spirit will lead us to all truth.
