What Prayer Is (Part One-and-a-half): More on Prayer as Communication

A follow-up to Part 1 of a series of posts on the nature of prayer. Check out the introductory post What Is Prayer? for more background, or go here to see all of the posts in this series so far.

Yesterday I posted a blog in which I characterized everything we do as a sort of never-ending, sometimes-unintentional prayer to God. If I had to sum up that argument in a logic statement, it would go something like this:

IF prayer is a way of communicating with God, AND God is always watching us, inferring from our actions our true nature, THEN our whole life is one big prayer, for better or worse.

In case that idea resonates with you and you’d like to explore it further, I wanted to recommend a couple of books that have more to say (and more eloquently) on the matter of aligning our words and actions:

Both of these books have had a real impact on me, and I believe confidently that both contain Biblically-sound truths shared by Godly men.

If you’ve found other books, blogs, websites, or resources that touch on this idea, let us know in the comments.

Cheers,
D
