It's a serious question

It's not like you can Google this one.
(Well, you can, but with eight million results, it gets even more confusing.)
How do you pray?

I struggle with this one. A lot.
(I guess I am reaching out here to Beth and Melissa and Rachel; you guys seem to talk so easy to the Man; it is a relationship I'm looking for.)

I was at mass on Saturday night thinking about this very question. Prayed for an answer. Cleared my head, cleared my heart, and asked God to show me the way. That I was his and if he wanted me to affect change in myself and others, lemme have it.
But I'm never sure that I'm ever heard.
(Part of being a realist; I have been aptly named Thomas as I am the one who needs to see the miracle.)

So, how do you pray?

Have you ever read the book "What Got Wants"? Maybe it would give you some ideas...

There is more than one, I think. The author is Neale Donald Walsch. He lives in Ashland, Oregon.

I can't beleive I missed this post. I'm not sure I would have been much help, though. I stopped talking to "The Man" for a little while. Mostly, I talk to him like I would talk to anyone else. He gets my honesty- my brutal honesty. I swear, I yell, I scream. I also cry, and laugh, and whisper. There's no simple, step by step answer for this one. he just wants to hear your heart.

God hears you, in the middle of the night or in a crowded place.

The hard part, I think, isn't learning how to talk to God. The hard part is learning to listen for His answer.
