Prayer is the most basic and the most powerful way that
we experience God. Prayer is our attempt to reach up
to God. Grace is God’s hand reaching down to us. And
somewhere in there, a connection is made and we experience God. Martin Buber was a Jewish philosopher and
author. He wrote a book called I and Thou in which he examined the relationship between people and things, and
then by extension, he looked at the relationship between
humanity and the Divine. The Divine, he explained, was always out of our reach. We cannot explain the Divine. We cannot fully know the Divine. We simply reach up, struggling, opening ourselves up, not understanding, yet yearning
to connect. This, he said, was prayer. I have never found a more satisfying explanation of prayer anywhere.
