(Need to start at the beginning? Day 1)

When I was a kid, we had this old giant apricot tree with a treehouse in it (it was really just a couple of boards). I used to sit up there and talk to God. I’ve never really gotten away from the conversation model. 🙂

I’ve had years when I didn’t pray that much and years when I prayed quite a bit (and asked myself why I didn’t do that always).

Devote yourselves to prayer, being watchful and thankful.  Colossians 4:2 NIV

Nowadays, I’m pretty good about praying for others, but I’m still a bit tentative when it comes to praying for myself (shades of childhood). I’ve read a number of books on prayer, but not really been happy with any of them (not sure why).

What’s your history with prayer?
