The difference...

One thing that has made a lasting impression on me, is the difference between magic and Christian prayer. Magic you have to get exactly right. It's terribly legalistic. You are dealing with forces you really don't understand and if you slip up, pow! the spirits will take advantage of you and you're in trouble. In prayer you are talking to a wise friend about a problem he understands even if you don't. You depend on his help and the understanding he gives you. If you say a wrong word, it's not as if he is even surprised. He totally and intimately understands you...
