Notes
Be Still and Know was first published by Fount Paperbacks, London, in 1982, and Seabury Press, new York, in 1983 -- verso of t.-p.
"This book has a single theme, but its two parts are difference in form. The first is a study of the Prayer of Jesus and the understanding of prayer in St. Paul, St. John and the Letter to the Hebrews as well as in the story of the Transfiguration. The second part is more directly pastoral in form, and deals with some of the practical aspects of Christian praying, with a digression on some lessons from the English Mystics of the fourteenth century and the Spanish Mystics of the sixteenth, in the belief that they speak to our contemporary world" -- Preface.

"I do not see Christian allegiance as a matter of adopting simple answers and I distrust those who thrust them upon others, particularly if they are urging various kinds of heroic behaviour which the speakers are not required to practice themselves -- the heterosexual urging sexual abstinence on the homosexual, celibate priests urging married women not to use contraceptive, or the happily married condemning divorce."

"St. Luke writes that following the Ascension of the Lord, the disciples were gathered in an upper room 'constantly devoting themselves to prayer'." "Since those first days of the church, the time between Ascension Day and the Day of Pentecost has been marked by calls to prayer for strength and wisdom in bearing a faithful witness to the gospel, for a fresh outpouring of the Holy Spirit to grace and guide the church in every age". "In the spirit of that long-standing tradition, the Archbishops of Canterbury and York, in 2016, invited 'a wave of prayer' across the Church of England. The response, according to Justin Welby, was 'astonishing'. Thousands of people joined in -- not just Anglicans, but people of many other denominations, too, and not just in England, but many other countries around the world. The response inspired the archbishops to launch 'Thy Kingdom Come', a global call to prayer between Ascension Day and the Day of Pentecost, 2017". Archbishop Fred Hiltz has called on the Anglican Church of Canada to participate. Article includes day by day prayer intentions with image of the logo of the 10-day global prayer initiative "Thy Kingdom Come".

"People in two dioceses on opposite sides of the globe have taken part in their first joint annual prayer day. The Bishop of Carlisle, the Rt. Rev. James Newcome, and the Bishop of Northern Argentina, the Rt. Rev. Nick Drayson sent reciprocal messages of greeting. The prayer day builds on work that has been ongoing for more than twenty years to build stronger ties between the two diocese. Since 1995 there have been a number of visits to and from Northern Argentina. There's also been prayerful support for a number of projects including a soup kitchen and medical services, refurbishment of a property as a home for Bishop Nick and ways to restore Christian faith within Amerindian families".

Notes
"Prayer is a lifeline for us as individual Christians and as part of the body of Jesus Christ. It was Jesus who taught us to pray and He encouraged us to ask for anything in his name. When I meet members of the Communion in different countries around the world I frequently hear stories of the transforming power of prayer, so it is very fitting that this issue of Anglican World has a focus on prayer and making space for spiritual development".
