The other day,as we sat at the dinner table, I asked, "Have we prayed yet?"
Saying a quick blessing over food does not necessarily constitute a prayer from the heart.. Prayer is profoundly sacred space,. A meaningful conversation with Almighty God, the Great Creator of the Universe -- the Group of all Being and Essence of Everything, is certainly something to remember. If we can't recall whether or not we've had such a conversation, then we probably haven't prayed yet.
There's a significant difference between really praying and mumbling a few words with your eyes closed.
