Recap of chapter 1:
"Our trust in ourselves and in our talents makes us structurally independent of God. As a result, exhortations to pray do not stick."--So true. The reason I don't pray is because I think I can do it by myself. Or the only time, I do pray is AFTER I have tried everything I can possible think of.
Recap of chapter 2:
The author gave a great comparison of prayer to a family dinner. You don't sit at dinner and think about the conversation, we, instead, focus on the person with whom we are talking. The same is true with God. "A praying life feels like our family mealtimes because prayer is all about relationship. Many people struggle to pray because they are focusing on praying, not on God."

Hopefully, blogging about prayer and my struggles with it will be an encouragement to you, but also an encouragement to me to continue and be consistent with my time getting to know the Lord.
