The Experience of Prayer
July 10, 1961
July 10, 1961. Running time: 25:27. Of all the things the disciples asked Jesus to teach them, they especially asked, "Teach us how to pray." Prayer is not merely the cry of an anguished soul, but it is the awareness of God himself. It helps us cultivate our cognizance of God. The true challenge is to discipline ourselves to be silent, to be patient, and to be willing to surrender. These three disciplines are integrated in prayer.
