humans pray

I'm one of those that follow-up on links to my blog. I'm not sure why, perhaps I feel important that way ... who knows. Paul Hill just linked to me for something I copied from Michael Patton so while I am not likely important, at least I provide a connection. That aside, Hill has a quote of Eugene Peterson that I really like. Perhaps it's not that great but it seems important because of some conversation my small group has recently had regarding humanity v. the animal kingdom (don't ask ...).

Prayer is the most deeply human action in which we can engage. Behavior we have in common with the animals. Thinking we have in common with the angels. But prayer — the attentiveness and responsiveness of the human being before God — this is human. ~ Eugene Peterson in Under the Predictable Plant
