You did it! You prayed!

If you've ever seen a production of J. M. Barrie's Peter Pan, you probably remember that soaring moment when Peter teaches Wendy and her two brothers how to fly. Suddenly breaking free from the limitations of space and gravity, the children leap into the air and follow Peter as he vaults and arcs all over their nursery. Jubilant, they all sing the song that's become the show's trademark—"I'm flying!"

To many of us, the idea of praying—about our lives and the challenges we face—may seem about as alien as suddenly taking wing and flying. Maybe we think we don't have time to pray or that we're not holy enough to approach God in prayer. Or maybe we just don't see the connection between prayer and such practical matters as raising children, paying bills, solving career problems, improving our health. Maybe we think prayer just doesn't work.

Hold on!
