I learned how to pray when I was an Evangelical Christian. Back then, prayer was just one small part of a bigger, intertwined web of beliefs and practices that made up my conservative Christian faith.
Since leaving Evangelicalism, I’ve found a different way to be a Christian – one that works for both my head and my heart. But how am I supposed to pray now that I don’t buy into the entire Evangelical belief system? I still want to pray, but how? This is an intensely personal question, because I miss the warm, consistent experiences of prayer that permeated my life before my doubts drove me out of Evangelicalism.
