Holiness, Prayer, and the Holy Spirit

“Prayer is the crucial practice through which we are drawn into the life of the Trinity.” — Hauerwas and Willimon, The Holy Spirit

In Romans 8 Paul talks about the Spirit interceding for us with deep groanings. With prayer, partnered with the Spirit, we are caught up into the life of God.

“To be so ‘caught’ is to be made holy.” (Hauerwas and Willimon)
