What is Prayer?  Communication

Second, prayer is communication. This is probably the most common definition of prayer (talking to God). Any good relationship needs meaningful communication.  God desires prayer to be two-way-communication, an ongoing dialogue with us.

The following definition dives into different elements of communication: “Two-way process of reaching mutual understanding, in which participants not only exchange information, news, ideas and feelings but also create and share meaning. In general, communication is a means of connecting people or places.” (businessdictionary.com)

Prayer:  Father, help me to utilize both elements of communication, not only doing the talking, but also listening.  Enable me to experience greater meaning through our time together, connecting on a deeper level with one another.  Amen
