While meditation introduces us to the inner life, prayer is the central avenue God uses to transform us. We tend to think of “intercessory prayer” when we speak of prayer, but there is much more to a prayer life than this. In prayer, we begin to think God’s thoughts: we desire what God desires; we love what God loves; we will what God wills. In prayer, we are collaborators with God. We are working with God to determine the future. Praying is a matter of opening ourselves so that God’s life and power can flow through us into others. To explore prayer further, click here.
