good in conversation

"If you want to become brilliant in prayer, you have to become really good in conversation with people. You have to care about people. You have to chat to people. You have to connect with people in the messy place where their life is. And it's in those times when you give yourself to those conversations that compassion can rise up and take hold of you, and your compassion will cause you to pray properly over someone."

very interesting...

sometimes when I'm talking with my friends I can only understand a percentage of their meaning, missing lots of nuances and such. I wish I could go deep, deep into the hearts of friends but there's still a language barrier. I guess this is one thing that I appreciate about my future -- the endeavor of learning more language ever before me.
