Do I meet you praying?

The saintly Methodist leader John Fletcher of Madeley is said to have prayed at all times, regularly spending all night in prayer and when walking, greeting his friends he would ask the question, “Do I meet you praying?”

It is said the first sign of madness is talking to yourself – I suspect many might think I’m going mad for I always walk and talk to the Lord. But I often see people walking along the road, headphones in their ears, talking – I presume they’re on their phone. Why not put your headphones on, put some music on and walk and talk out loud to the Lord – cultivating a constant communication with Jesus.

Simon Ponsonby
