Pray-Reading (The Local Church)

Aberrational, Heretical, Heterodox, Suborthodox or Unorthodox Pray-Reading (The Local Church)


A practice of The Local Church (aka The Lord's Recovery) which, theologically, is a cult of Christianity

The practice of pray-reading involves the repetitious public and private reading and reciting of Scripture, Witness Lee's footnotes from the Local Church's Recovery Version New Testament, songs from the Local Church's hymn book, and passages from the writings of Witness Lee. Words, phrases, and sentences are punctuated with loudly shouted Amens!, Hallelujahs! , O Lord Jesus!, and Praise the Lord! This practice is intended to offer these spoken words as prayers unto God.
