Rejoice always, pray constantly, in everything give thanks (1 Thess 5:17)
Pray constantly. Hmm. Paul’s first century readers were not professional mystics or monks any more than his 21st century readers are.
So, he was obviously talking about prayer interwoven with work, which is actually a lovely form of prayer, a kind of redemption.
I experienced this today as I played worship music (Misty Edwards) while doing yoga. It flowed quite well, until I found the words distracting and then stopped.
I like the worship music of people like Alberto Rivera (and Misty Edwards) because of their conscious attempt to mimic what they call the soundscapes of heaven, and to usher people into the presence of God.
It is certainly blessed (I believe people would call it “anointed”) music, because it really does usher one into God’s presence fairly quickly.
