"It's complicated" is a popular social media relationship status. Unfortunately, but understandably, this description also applies to the prayer relationship of many, especially those new to it. The word prayer evokes different images for different people. For some of us it may conjure up an image of a pastor with an eloquent thundering voice pleading with God at the church altar, for others the image may be that of a soft spoken child kneeling beside their bed reciting "now I lay me down to sleep..."
