Eugene Peterson on prayer - 2

“Don’t despise fixed prayers. Among most Evangelicals, they don’t think fixed prayers are real prayers…You don’t feel like praying? Well, you don’t have to feel like praying. Just pray the Psalms…Fixed prayers have always been important part of the churches life…Mary’s prayer, Simeon’s prayer.
