> I recently conversed with a friend who described her experiences in talking to God. I was powerfully moved when I heard about how she spent hours pouring out her deepest feelings to her Creator. I wanted to know more about her experiences and to find out what I was missing. After several days dwelling on the matter, I took a long drive by myself.

> Eventually I turned off the radio and CD player and started to unload feelings that I had bottled up for a long time. I lost track of time, but I must have spent at least an hour talking to God. Although I didn't hear God answer right away, within in a few days I found myself trying to connect to God and listen for God's voice as I prayed. I do hear God's voice inwardly now, a "still small voice" perhaps like what Elijah heard on Mt. Horeb. (1 Kings 19:12)

> At 64 years old, I ask myself, How could I have missed this my whole life? I will be eternally grateful to my friend for talking to me about how she prayed. Following her example opened the door to a deeper relationship with God.
