"If you want a normal life, with prayer kind of like a spigot over here, where when you need it, you go turn it on, you will never have living prayer. If you want living prayer, you have to understand, you are signing on to live in a different world. What is prayer? It's communication with God about what we're doing together. And back when God and I weren't doing anything together, we didn't have anything to talk about. Now if you're not doing anything together with God, you're probably not going to have much to say to him. So prayer is communication with God about what he and I are doing together. Now the work of God actually includes me and my well-being. But when I pray for me and my well-being, I'm not just praying for me because I want well-being, I'm praying for my well-being for the glory of God."
