Attitude in Prayer

Some judge one day to be better than another, while others judge all the days to be alike. Let all be fully convinced in their own minds. Those who observe the day, observe it in honour of the Lord. – Romans 14:5-6

Abba Arsenius, a desert father, began to prepare for the glory of Sunday on Saturday evenings. He turned his back to the sun and stretched his hands towards heaven in prayer. He continued this posture all night, until the light of the rising sun struck his face. Then he sat down.

What can we do each day this year, to observe the day in honour of the Lord?
