Just two friends

Prayer is a rather simple thing when you get down to it. It's just two friends hanging out with each other, sharing thoughts and feelings, asking and giving forgiveness, asking and giving advice. Prayer is what happens when two friends are together and aware of each other's presence.
- Praying the Truth: Deepening Your Friendship with God through Honest Prayer, William Barry SJ, p. 9

Oh, because I always link to it? Usually I get my books from the library, but I link to Amazon because then people can read the customer reviews of the book.

Sorry, yes thats it. Just kidding of course. Amazon makes it way to easy for me to buy ebooks. You're just my enabler(also kidding:) I managed to forgo the temptation this time. Probably because its almost Lent. I do find the notion of friendship and prayer appealing though. Best, Rich

Oh ha :) I know - I'm so tempted by the easy 1-click kindle book buying at Amazon, but now that the library has kindle books for checkout online, it's not so bad.
