vision cover prayer

From the editorial:

The life of the church, routine as it often is, takes on urgency in times of crisis. But without the everyday practices of our faith, we would have nothing to turn to when we are in great need. Prayer is at the heart of Christian practice, public and private. We pray on momentous occasions, those times marking the milestones and the disruptions of our lives, as well as in the seasons of the turning year. We pray in services of worship, in small groups, and before meals. We also pray in the course of the day. Consciously and unconsciously, we are privileged to take everything to God in prayer. Many of us often pray but rarely talk about it; the purpose of this issue of Vision is to open up a conversation about our praying.
