When you pray you know you are not merely human
You are more divine 
Prayer is the incredible intimacy 
And forgiving tenderness of God around our lives
You don’t need to go to super gurus to learn how to pray
You don’t have to go on a 55 step spiritual path 
to learn how to say a proper prayer.
And you don’t have to get therapy backwards, forwards and sideways in order to be able to pray.
And you don’t need to get into the fundamentalist trip
And do a heavy weight hammer job on the most interesting parts of your own contradictions and complexities in order to pray.
You can pray wherever you are now in exactly the way that you are.
That’s the most real prayer of all is the prayer that emerges from the honesty of your own personal situation and from the depth of your life precisely as it is now.
All this waiting for the divine and all this journey towards the divine is postponement and distraction.
No matter what situation you’re in you can always call from your mind a lovely whisper or song of prayer. 
- John O'Donohue

The fear OF the Lord is the beginning of wisdom. Most people think this means to fear God is the beginning of wisdom. But that is not the case. 

When Jesus left the upper room after His last meal, He left the Upper Room saying "now is the hour of the power of Darkness" and He willingly left communication with the Father, who He had been in communication with for eternity, to save our souls from hell.

This is the fear OF the Lord. He feared for our safety more than for His own personal comfort and safety.

To know this is the beginning of wisdom.
