Next week I’m giving a short talk on prayer to adults.  I’ve done it before, I have something prepared, and the reflections and thoughts from your blog posts help to inspire me.  The problem is, however, the older I get, the more I realize that my words fall short.

Oh sure, I can define prayer, describe what it ‘looks’ like, even present many different types, kinds and methods of prayer……but, I cannot give them the ‘experience’ of prayer.  That is too intimate and too sacred.

Every relationship begins with boundaries and guidelines.  Even the Chosen People were given the Ten Commandments to help them get started.  But then, if your heart is open, the relationship takes over and everything else falls away. 

Prayer is the invitation, the embrace, the knowing.   Prayer is the heart’s voice in the Love Story.
