Prayer should be at the heart of that a Christian does, but invariably it is something that many people find difficult. The disciples themselve found prayer difficult at first. The Gospels remind us that when Jesus went off to pray, often he would visit an isolated spot. When the disciples accompanied him, on more than one occasion they ended up falling asleep.
It was only when the disciples had been with Jesus, and grew in their relationship with God did the disciples become more experienced with prayer.
Part of our growing in prayer involves a searching for stillness, both in immediate vincinity but also deep down within our own psyche. Today's 24/7 modern world does not make this search any easier.
