“Prayer catapults us onto the frontier of the spiritual life. Of all the Spiritual Disciplines prayer is the most central because it ushers us into perpetual communion with the Father.”
From my morning readings in “A Celebration of Discipline”, by Richard J. Foster.
Prayer is like dropping in to see your best friend, who is always glad to see you, and has things to share that enrich our lives. Only by praying can I build my spiritual muscles!
