Prayer

Prayer

Prayer is first of all listening to God. It’s openness. God is always speaking; he’s always doing something. Prayer is to enter into that activity. … Convert your thoughts into prayer. As we are involved in unceasing thinking, so we are called to unceasing prayer. The difference is not that prayer is thinking about other things, but that prayer is thinking in dialogue, … a conversation with God.

  1. Prayer and meditation are a large piece of the AA program. I have heard it said that prayer is when you are talking to God, meditation occurs when you are listening. Either way, the connection is the important piece. Or peace.

    Great photo.

    Have a great week.
