As we continue to examine what prayer looks like in our lives, take a lesson from Saint Theophan the Recluse (author of many books on the spiritual life). He teaches that there are 3 degrees of prayer: the body (or posture), the mind (our thoughts) and our heart (feelings). “Real prayer”, according to Theophan, combines all three facets of prayer at once. But how can we best connect our body, mind and heart together?
