Monday's Quote: Prayer


A thought about prayer from R.J. Rushdoony's book A Word in Season Volume 2.
The trouble with most prayer is that the person praying is not really talking with God but carrying on a recitation into the air.  True prayer involves communion and conversation, and it is a continuous thing.  We do not limit our conversations with our husband or wife to a set time, at meals or before going to sleep, and then keep silent all the rest of the day.  We talk when we have something to say.  The same is true with God.  If we limit our prayers to set, formal times, we soon have little to say then.
What kind of prayers do you have?  How often do you have them?
