What is prayer?
To put it simply, prayer is talking with God. It can be talking to God but like any conversation it is better when it is a two-way process. So prayer involves listening to God as much as it does talking. In fact it is in what we don’t say, in the waiting, listening and the longing that we enter more deeply into prayer.
Prayer can be a private or a corporate activity. We can pray on our own or with others, at church or at home, on the bus or at work. We can pray for others or for ourselves and sometimes we ask other people to pray for us.
