I grew up in the church and up until two years ago, I didn’t leave the house in the morning or go to sleep at night without praying to God. I have had an awaking of sorts in the past couple of years and my idea of God has expanded. I am grateful to have undergone this experience, but I no longer understand how to pray (as silly as it may sound). I always prayed to God as if I were talking to a person. Now I read about ‘affirmative prayer’ versus ‘prayers that come from lack,’ and honestly, I really wish there were a way for me to synthesize and learn to pray again.
