I Pray Every Day

January 13, 2021

I pray two or three times a day, and if I’m having a great day, even more - I say little prayers of gratitude throughout the day.

Sometimes I think this catches people by surprise.  Most people think of me, I hope, as kind of a hard nosed numbers and rationality guy.  But rationality and prayer aren’t contradictory.  They just cover two different parts of the human experience – the knowable and the unknowable.  For all that we know, for all that we can know, there will always be a part that is unknowable.  We might answer the What, but here on earth we can never truly answer the Why.  Why?  Why are we here?  Why does what we do matter?  We can’t know Why.  We just have to believe.

People ask me how I’m able to do what I do, how I can keep multiple long term projects moving forward.  Prayer is a big part of it.
