Notice the person, in between the 2 cars. He is a cabdriver in downtown Berkeley. He is praying in the middle of the afternoon, doesn’t matter where.
Prayer is a recognition that there is a God in charge. That we need to ask, lift it up to him, be grateful for the things that we are enjoying in life because it is a gift. Being Catholic, I used to say, I was just mouthing the words, I know about him, but we pray too much as a kid, I didn’t know what it really means.
It feels good to experience humility, stripped of self absorbed qualities, and just be oneself and be able to commune with God.
