Christian scholars call for New Year’s resolution to daily prayer

From The Church of England News-

Renowned Christian authors behind the latest in a series of Bible notes from the Church of England, released today, have called for Christians to reconsider the time and energy they spend on daily Bible study and prayer in the same way as they might be reassessing other areas of their lives at the beginning of the year.

“Making daily prayer and Bible study part of your morning routine will improve your spiritual health in the same way as getting more exercise will improve your physical health,” argues the Rt Revd Tom Wright, Bishop of Durham, to mark the launch of the latest in the daily Bible notes series, Reflections for Daily Prayer, by Church House Publishing. “January is obviously a good time to get into positive new habits, and the Reflections series is proving just the right sort of Biblical personal trainer for thousands of Christians.”

Reflections for Daily Prayer is a series offering contemporary, stimulating Bible commentaries in a handy format for each day of the working week, designed to refresh and inspire times of personal prayer. Almost 14,000 copies of previous editions of the series have been sold since the series was first launched at the end of 2007.
