Turning us loose to pray...

I've just read a wonderful post from Brother Bede Thomas Mudge OHC, on, among other things, the Jesus Prayer. He says:

I finished [the evening] with some suggestions about other uses of the Prayer - to accompany people through the day and through the night, and in praying for others, especially when you don't know what to pray for. Just putting a person in your consciousness and praying over them: "Lord Jesus Christ, Word of God, have mercy" is a wonderful way to intercede, and helps us to turn loose of the manipulative approach to God that troubles many of us when we pray.

Do click over and read the whole post!
