From Brian McLaren: "This was another older song that I rewrote during my sabbatical. It attempts to take prayer out of its box, and let a more mature contemplative spirituality invade and enrich all of our lives, so that we truly "pray without ceasing." I'm especially happy about the line, "Death is my life praying" (along with the reference to death in "Praise to the One") because I think we need to get more comfortable with the reality of death, to integrate it into our spiritual lives, and to stop reducing it to an enemy. It is, like all profound things, both an enemy and a friend."
From CMP: Brian McLaren was on a road Sabbatical for the first 8 months of 2016. During this time away from the grind of constant travel and preparation for live events Brian wrote, rewrote, compiled, and recorded demos (not finished studio recordings) of 21 songs. 9 of these demos are currently available here on the CMP site, and we are in the process of creating lead sheets and piano arrangements for them. If you would like to purchase this entire collection of Brian's demo's, lyrics, and some notes he wrote about each song (21 songs for $18), please email Bryan Sirchio, CMP Lead Designer, and he will send you a link you can use to purchase Brian's entire collection.
