St. Paul tells us in 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18, "Always rejoice. Pray without ceasing. In all things give thanks; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you all." The Jesus Prayer is a way to frequently and humbly acknowledge Jesus as God and ourselves as sinners in need of His mercy. And, what better habit to attach a prayer to than drinking coffee? If you can successfully build a habit of prayer that is as consistent and dedicated as your habit of coffee consumption, you will be well on your way to unceasing prayer, constant communion with God, and a clear path to sanctity.
