“American culture is probably the hardest place in the world to learn to pray. We are so busy that when we slow down to pray, we find it uncomfortable. We prize accomplishments, production. But prayer is nothing but talking to God. It feels useless, as if we are wasting time. Every bone in our body screams, ‘Get to work.’” 

Paul E. MillerA Praying Life3.

“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.”

“Prayer does not fit us for the greater work; prayer is the greater work.”
