What is prayer to you? How do you pray?
Prayer is the most important talk I do. It is the best thing that happens to me as I feel most intimate with God, my creator and saviour, my refuge and strength, my only constant friend.
In recent years, especially the past months, I find myself often in prayer, in solitary, or even amid the maddening crowd. Prayer is extremely appeasing. My praying has become more intense too, as biological days race and tick.
Prayer placates. It keeps me closest to my highest power. It makes me most vulnerable before Him, who I long to be with ... "I hope to see my Pilot face to face when I have crossed the bar," as one of my favourite poets, Alfred Lord Tennyson, prayerfully puts it.
