What might prayer look like when coupled with an appreciation of our embodiment? It may incorporate a wide variety of physical postures, as Doug Pagitt and Kathryn Prill prescribe in Body Prayer. It may also follow the rhythm of the day--something Christians have long expressed through the Liturgy of the Hours. We Protestants may resist patterns of prescribed prayer, but we often replace them with routines that are less creative and more sporadic. Try following the Liturgy for a few days. It will make you more conscious of life's cadence, especially with brief night prayers that mark the close of the day. "May the Almighty Lord grant us a quiet night and a perfect end. Amen."
