Prayer can seem like a scary thing. But much like learning how to swim, the important thing is to at least get our toes in the water!
“The single most important piece of advice about prayer is one word: Begin! . . . When we pray, instead of trying to produce love in our souls toward God, we should be basking in God's love for us. How foolish to stay indoors in the cold, dark little room of the self, trying to turn on the light and turn up the heat, when we can just go outside into God's glorious Sonlight and receive his rays! How silly to fuss with artificial tanning salons and lotions and lights when the Son is out!”
― Peter Kreeft, Prayer for Beginners
