Action Prayer: Sample the Prayer

Action prayer is nonverbal communication to God, using our attitudes and our attempts to obey, which draws its energy from Christ’s example and empowerment.

If committing a whole day to this sort of embodied prayer seems like a deterrent to ever getting started, consider designating 15 or 30 minutes to it. For example, if your workday begins at 9:00 a.m., give yourself a chance to get settled and then practice this prayer of action from 9:30 to 9:45. Use this timeframe every day for a week and then pick another 15-minute slot. Begin with a period that is likely to include few people. Move to one with more interaction or expand your timeframe as you grow confident in the practice.
