Prayer, Praise and Worship. Part One


As you already know, Prayer is simply communicating with G-d. What you probably are not aware of is that it is a two way communication. It is easy to talk to G-d, but we need to talk with G-d.

As Christians, we normally conduct our prayers in a manner where G-d can’t get a word in edgewise. We ramble on without any desire to hear what G-d has to say. I prayed that way for years. Thinking back, I kind of wonder if G-d was sitting there saying, “Yada, Yada, Yada.” Of course, he wasn’t, but I wouldn’t blame him if he did.

In reality, G-d is a great listener and loves to hear from you. However, as I said before, prayer is a two way street. To get the full benefit, you have to be willing to sit there and listen too.


  1. Ouch! Sometimes the truth hurts. I, for one, do not listen enough. Thanks for the reminder.
