Chapter 2:  Is Prayer a One-Way Conversation?

IT WAS AN AWKWARDLY SILENT WAY TO BEGIN a seminar on prayer. Before he began to teach, Paul Miller asked those people who had come to learn more about prayer to spend five minutes praying. Then he asked them to tell him what they experienced in those five minutes of silence as they prayed. People responded:

“It felt like a one way conversation. I did all the talking.”

“It was boring.”
