I’m reading Anne of Green Gables with my daughters.
In one scene, Anne’s adoptive mother, Marilla, exclaims to the precocious youngster:
If you’ll be a good girl you’ll always be happy, Anne. And you should never find it hard to say your prayers.
Anne simply follows up by stating:
Saying one’s prayers isn’t exactly the same thing as praying.
What do you do to move your prayer life beyond “Saying your prayers” to actually praying?
