Carmen Agra Deedy
In working with people across the country and around the world, I've come to know that most of us go through times that re-route our prayer life.
I remember being at school during morning meeting and looking around at everybody, 350 kids, saying a prayer. We're all very young and no one knows what it means, and I remember feeling strange that people were just repeating words that they didn't understand. I refused to participate. For some reason I always rejected it, but respectfully.
Just the same way I'd say a prayer before going onstage, taking that even further and using the drum to inspire people. And using that as a vehicle for the intention.
In Lincoln's day a President's religion was a very private affair. There were no public prayer meetings, no attempts to woo the Religious Right. Few of Lincoln's countrymen knew anything at all of his religious beliefs.

He had one uniform practice, and a very bad one it was, during the time of family worship, and just three or four seconds before the conclusion of the prayer, he started to his feet, and ran barking round the apartment like a crazed beast.
Action is the normal completion of the act of will which begins as prayer. That action is not always external, but it is always some kind of effective energy.
By my definition, prayer is consciously hanging out with God. Being with God in a deliberate way.
Prayer is our invitation to God to intervene in the affairs of earth. It is our request for Him to work His ways in this world.
I've taught a lot about prayer over the years and how it is really just talking to God.
