Pastor, Scott Hubbard, is an editor for Desiring God. Turning to the words and example of Jesus, his article is an encouragement and guide for the times that prayer can seem merely a discipline, reminding us that God invites us to approach him in prayer, to share our cares and lives with him.

"Prayer easily becomes impersonal: “to pray” is to run down a list of names, sit or kneel in such and such place for so long, drive in the old familiar ruts of phrases said ten thousand times. But most fundamentally, prayer is not an abstract activity or a habit or even a spiritual discipline; prayer is a personal response to a personal God — a God whom Jesus told us to call Father."
