Prayer is communication with God in all its forms. Deeper prayer, prayer of the heart, meditation and contemplation, move toward communion, co-union with God. Prayer begins with our turning to God, but awaits God’s acting in us. Prayer is a joint effort between you and God; it is a dialogue, a mutuality. God prays in you before, during and after you pray to God. Today we will deal with some actual prayer exercises. These work and are surprisingly simple.
