All tagged Prayer
Christians are not permitted to sit on their hands or twiddle their thumbs. There is a positive action that the Christian can take. This is where Barth's reoccurring but never entirely dominate view on prayer sneaks into view. Prayer remains an action for the Christian to communicate dependence upon God—it is an anti-anxiety action.
Direct and intimate attention affirms visibly our commitment and love. Doubly so with the Lord’s Prayer because as a whole, it draws us closer to the Father and places us in His care.
