Thanks, Nadia! I also recently read Suchocki's book, and while I loved the images of prayer it put forth, I was having trouble seeing how that sort of prayer looked in a congregational/practical context: not only how to talk about prayer, but how to pray. Your stories have connected the two for me. :)

I got to a point in my life where I have stopped praying...I guess I questioned why I did so much and then got out of it. Recently I have felt compelled to pray again....still not sure if it made sense. Your words remind me why prayer is for more than just me and why prayer is truly important. Thanks again for your words.

Thank you so much for writing this sermon. This will continue to be very helpful for me and my family as we are currently going through struggles of our own and to remind us not to fall out of prayer.

I really enjoyed reading this and am really glad that my sis-in-law posted a link on Facebook. What a timely reminder to pray and to be humble enough to ask others to pray for you and with you. Thanks

This inspired a bible study for my middle school youth group, http://ghbiblestudy.blogspot.com/2011/04/persistent-persistent-persistent.html, and I wound quoting this to the point of it being an abridged version of this sermon. (Credited, of course.) _Please_ let me know if I should change or decrease or cite differently.
