7 Habits of Prayerful People

"How easily the golfing pro drives a ball 280 yards! How gracefully the Olympic skater glides across the ice! How effortlessly the master teacher communicates even difficult concepts! But we are not fooled. We know that behind the apparent ease, grace, and spontaneity are years of discipline and training—the habits that have shaped the golfer, ice skater, teacher into a pro.

Dr. M. Scott Peck’s bestseller The Road Less Traveled emphasizes discipline grounded in habits. A habit is a disposition to perform certain actions according to a pattern. Grateful people say “thank you” for even a small gift. Courteous individuals are respectful of others in word and manner. Prayerful people turn their minds and hearts to God on a regular basis."
