quiet

Since a praying life is interconnected with every part of our lives, learning to pray is almost identical to maturing over a lifetime. What does it feel like to grow up?
It is a thousand feelings on a thousand different days.
That is what learning to pray feels like.

So don't hunt for a feeling in prayer. Deep in our psyches we want an experience with God or an experience in prayer. Once we make that our quest, we lose God.
You don't experience God; you get to know Him.
