The language of prayer provides a strategy for intimacy with God.  Our prayers may include poetry, movement, prose, argument, doubt, discovery, silence.  “Once I was lost but now….” may be your prayer.  Our prayer song at The Table right now includes these lyrics:  “Will you call me child, when I tell you lies, cause all I know is how to cry.” (from Brokenness Aside by All Sons & Daughters).  Your prayer may be danced.  Did you know that Hula imparts story which often includes the prayers of the people?  Whatever the method, prayer provides a strategy for us to share our lives with God.  

How do you practice prayer?  How might you learn a new way to pray?
