In this episode of the guided lectio divina podcast, we’re using selected readings from Henri Nouwen‘s book The Way of the Heart: Connecting with God through Prayer, Wisdom, and Silence. This week we’re reading from the chapter on Prayer.
The literal translation of the words “pray always” is “come to rest.” The Greek word for rest is hesychia…The prayer of the hesychasts is a prayer of rest…a rest in God in the midst of a very intense daily struggle….The prayer of the hesychasts is a prayer of the heart.
