In the same way praying increases my knowledge of God. I come to know God, over time, in the act and habit of conversing with God. Wayne Grudem writes: "Prayer, which is personal communication from us to God, not only helps us know about God but also helps us truly know God." (Wayne Grudem, Christian Beliefs: Twenty Basics Every Christian Should Know, Kindle Locations 588-589)
Reading a book on prayer is good; praying is better. Hearing about other people's prayer lives helps; praying helps more. Knowing about God is cool; way cooler is knowing God.
