What is Prayer?

UnknownIn this season of Lent, we at The Table are studying the prayers of Jesus. But, what is prayer? Dr. Alvin VanderGriend, in his book Love to Pray, defines prayer as “the conversational part of the most important love relationship in our lives – our relationship with the Father, the Son, and Holy Spirit.” The church father, Augustine of Hippo, agrees, saying, “True, whole prayer is nothing but love.”

So as this week begins, ask yourself, “How do I view prayer?” Is it an obligation, something to be mastered, and/or an afterthought? If it is a piece of the most important relationship of your life, then how is it going, and how might you grow into it?

Wow. It's Quiet Here...
