Mr O, how can I improve my prayer life? And yes, before you answer, I know how you’re going to start. You’re going to tell me that I’m asking the wrong person! But I’ve already asked the Lord this question, and ever since then I’ve had a strong desire to talk to you about it.

Fair enough. So tell me this, what do you believe about prayer? What is it?

It’s simple, isn’t it? Ever since I was a child I’ve been taught that ‘prayer is talking to God’.

Oh dear. That definition isn’t really very good. It’s true that prayer usually involves talking to God, but that’s not what prayer is.

Really? What is it then?
