“Praying exposes how self-preoccupied we are and uncovers our doubts. It was easier on our faith not to pray. After a few minutes, our prayer is in shambles. Barely out of the starting gate, we collapse on the sidelines–cynical, guilty, and hopeless.”

“Something is wrong with us. Our natural desire to pray comes from Creation. We are made in the image of God. Our inability to pray comes from the Fall. Evil has marred the image. We want to talk to God but can’t. The friction of our desire to pray combined with our badly damaged prayer antennae, leads to constant frustration. It’s as if we’ve had a stroke.”
