Prayer gives God the space to work in us – and transform our hearts to become like the heart of Jesus. In prayer, we give ourselves to God and he gives himself to us. We need to fit in time to satisfy our desire for him just as he gives himself to us infinitely.
A CTS publication called ‘Prayer – meeting God where you are’ written by Celia Wolf-Devine (a retired philosophy professor and author) may be of interest to you and can be purchased from CTS Books.
The obstacles we need to overcome are explored here, and ways of prayer are offered to help us attain singleness of heart.
