What is prayer?

Prayer ≠ mediation.
Prayer ≠ spiritual desire

How so, George?

“Prayer is not meditation, because meditation is communing with our own souls, prayer is communing with God. Nor yet can it be said that prayer is nothing else but a spiritual desire; for prayer is the sending up of our desires to God, being put in order."

What often is true is that mediation leads to spiritual desire which leads to prayer.
