So often we think of prayer as something we do to break through to God and get His attention. But intimacy with God is actually His idea. He has taken the initiative, and prayer is His gift to us. It is an opportunity to embrace His invitation by calling, crying, and singing to Him. Prayer is our response to the One who has proclaimed His desire to be in a relationship with us. In Becoming a Woman of Prayer, Cynthia Heald encourages you to respond to God's invitation to experience deeper intimacy with Him.
