This is my view of prayer , for what it is worth. We pray as a , theologian , I can not remember his name but I claim only semi-literacy , that we pound on the door that God has shut and latched between us . O K , my limited unjudgemental view of THE MOST HIGH is that of perfect LOVE ,period . most of the praying I have been part of or heard is us yelling at GOD that SHE has got it wrong and everything would be so much better if we , I , us. were in charge. We don't pray , we accuse GOD and want to make deals. In the prayer between a PERFECT DIETY and us who do you think is getting it wrong. The Great Invocation is really not a prayer to GOD so much as it a a call to us to open the door. GOD did not send us away we ran away and still blame HER. When we start acting as the children of GOD that we are , pretty much all the things that need to be prayed for will happen. Perhaps I am just too childish in my explanation for some of the very erudite discussions here but if I can help a little it is worth seeming a bit foolish.
