A praying life feels like our family mealtimes because prayer is all about relationship. It’s intimate and hints of eternity. We don’t think about communication or words but about whom we are talking with. Prayer is simply the medium through which we experience and connect to God. Oddly enough, many people struggle to learn how to pray because they are focusing on praying, not on God. Making prayer the center is like making conversation the center of a family mealtime (p. 20).
