Thank you, Tom for pointing out the typo in Step 3.
Of course, it was ment to be Mt 6: 26-34.

Have a good journey with the Holy Spirit, Step by Step!

Thank you *so much* for this site. I am very much hearing God's call to deeper maturity in him, and this is helping me walk step-by-step as he is leading me.

I did want to let you know about an apparent typo on this page: http://stepbystepretreats.webs.com/stepfiles/Step%2003.htm
The first session reading indicated Mt 6, 26-43, but it appears that there are only 34 verses in this chapter. Perhaps someone transposed the digits?

Just wanted to let you know, to spare another pilgrim any confusion.

Thanks!

This is interesting. It reminds me of the thrice-daily Amidah or שמנה עשרה, a Hebrew standing-prayer, modeled after a memorial or memory of the three times of daily sacrificial offerings on the Temple Mount in Jerusalem until about Anno Domini 70, at the third, sixth and ninth hours of daylight, only circumvented by time spent in Torah study, particularly favored by devote Jews, religiously (down to the minute according to local astronomy of true high noon, etc.). The Apostles Peter & John, and the non-Jew Cornelius, the God-fearer, all seemed in the habit of keeping such times of prayer, as mentioned in the book of the Acts of the Apostles (Holy Bible). Acts 3:1?"Now Peter and John went up together into the temple at the hour of prayer, being the ninth hour." Acts 10:2&3?"A devout man, and one that feared God with all his house, which gave much alms to the people, and prayed to God alway. He saw in a vision evidently about the ninth hour of the day an angel of God coming in to him, and saying unto him, Cornelius." Acts 10:9,10&11?"...Peter went up upon the housetop to pray about the sixth hour: And he became very hungry, and would have eaten: but while they made ready, he fell into a trance, And saw heaven opened, ...." Like the Methodists, there can be a method, form or framework for Christians to follow. I am in favor of such habits, without becoming a starchy, irrelevant legalistic person. I am a Christian, of Protestant persuasion, but my Polish grandmother and Irish grandfather were Roman Catholic. They were immigrants to America.
