Prayer is about communicating with God. I used to like to explain it like being on the internet all the time, versus dial up: Instead of only connecting with Him when needed, you’re always connected. I realize that probably doesn’t make must sense to most people nowadays, but my point is that it should be constant, never ending. Even when we say “Amen”, that doesn’t mean it should be like hanging up the phone with Him, you know? Here are some links to posts I’ve written to explain it, maybe better than the modem analogy:

  1. Do You Ever Get Pissed at Jesus?
  2. Easier to Pray While Drunk?
  3. How Do I Talk to God?
  4. How Do I Know When God is Talking to me?
  5. How Can Christians Say God Said Something?
  6. How Can I Find God?
  7. Wasting Away
  8. What Is Prayer Really About?
  9. When It’s Hard to Feel God
