on prayer | 15

"The fourth and last of our 'Christian essentials' is prayer, and in particular the need for us all to grow in prayer. Growing in prayer is not simply acquiring a set of special spiritual skills that operate in one bit of your life. It is about growing into what St. Paul calls 'the measure of the full stature of Christ' (Ephesians 4:13). It is growing into the kind of humanity that Christ shows us. Growing in prayer, in other words, is growing in Christian humanity."

(Rowan Williams, Being Christian)
