. . . I was just wondering whether there would be any value in doing this
from a believer's perspective, especially from a Christian perspective, since
they believe that it is possible to have a 'personal relationship' with God,
via language. Or whether it might be worth forming an analysis of prayer
- not just collective prayer but personal prayer. . .


I for one would enjoy reading such a discourse, provided that it were done
honestly and with insight. It should follow the internal narrative not only
of consolation, but also of what John of the Cross called the Dark Night of
Soul. It should follow the believer's transitions through faith and doubt,
hope and despair, love and anger.
