Morning Musing Over Coffee - Prayer

If man is man and God is God, to live without prayer is not merely an awful thing: it is an infinitely foolish.
~ Phillips Brooks

And yet, knowing that God is God, and that I am merely human, I all too often approach prayer in a very casual and perfunctory way. It far too often becomes something that I do merely out of habit or because it's a "nice" or "good" thing to do, when in reality it should be the lifeline I hold onto every minute of every day.

Prayer is not merely an occasional impulse to which we respond when we are in trouble: prayer is a life attitude. ~ Walter A. Mueller
