To pray is not to beg. To pray is to interweave with the Creator in high frequency conversations.
Talk is cheap. Well, it depends to whom you talk. Prayer is invaluable because you are talking to a Higher Reality that is priceless. Prayer is part conversation, part acknowledgment, part realization, part meditation, and part actualization. Prayer induces swaying the same way flame ignition induces flickering. Prayer is a ladder, embedded in earth, touching heaven. The entire molecular structure of existence hinges upon this ladder. It is here that the rungs of the world are righted.
