Prayer is “living our daily life with someone.”

Prayer helps with loneliness. When we feel isolated or feel we are fighting alone in a desperate situation, God is there. But how do we talk to Him? My mother and I once had a conversation about that. She always had memorized hymns and Bible verses that she found inspiring. … For me, as with my mother, the poetry in hymns contains an endless store of moments with God. However we choose to do it, we need to start the conversation now. Enlarging the place in our heart for prayer strengthens and sustains our faith and our believing. As George LeFebvre, a Benedictine monk, wrote: “Prayer is an end to isolation. It is living our daily life with someone.” (Living Large 2013)
