"Point of prayer: to improve our conscious contact… The motherlode of prayer! When begin to pray, worry: am I making any contact? Learn: contact comes many forms. Before conscious contact, unconscious contact. Then sub-conscious. Then barely conscious; low-key conscious contact all the way to most intense."                                                               Anne Arbor - Vineyard Church
