free Origen on Prayer book

The latest Classic book recommended by Christian Classics Ethereal Library is Origen on Prayer.

origen.jpgOrigen was an early church father (185-254), and s you may suspect this book is mostly about prayer! In it he highlights four types of prayer from Timothy 1:

  • requests
  • prayer
  • intercession
  • thanksgiving

Origen led an amazing life culminating in his death after being tortured during persecution. He was a prolific writer, and wrote commentaries on all books in the bible. Not only that but he even wrote a corrected version of the Septuagint bible.

Here is an extract from Origen on Prayer:

Again I believe the words of the prayer of the saints to be full of power above all when praying ‘with the spirit,’ they pray ‘also with the understanding,’ which is like a light rising from the suppliant’s mind and proceeding from his lips to gradually weaken by the power of God the mental venom injected by the adverse powers into the intellect of such as neglect prayer and fail to keep that saying of Paul’s in accordance with the exhortations of Jesus, ‘Pray without ceasing.’ … For the saying ‘pray without ceasing’ can only be accepted by us as a possibility if we may speak of the whole life of a saint as one great continuous prayer.

  1. Origen was a corrupt so-called church father. He wrote ”THE HEXALPHA” FROM WHICH ALL THE PERVERSE TRANSLATION OF THE BIBLE, OTHER THAN THOSE FROM THE CORRECT RECEIVED TEXT ARE DERIVED.

  3. I read rubbish like what Foltz above said. The truth is the Church had variant readings from very early on. Way before Origen. And you know what? They didn’t argue about it. What’s more the NT writers themselves quote more from the Septuagint than they do from the Masoretic text. They’re the facts.
