What about prayer? Scripture and questions for Dec. 1

1 Corinthians 14:15-17
What should I do then? I will pray with the spirit, but I will pray with the mind also; I will sing praise with the spirit, but I will sing praise with the mind also. Otherwise, if you say a blessing with the spirit, how can anyone in the position of an outsider say the “Amen” to your thanksgiving, since the outsider does not know what you are saying? For you may give thanks well enough, but the other person is not built up.

Questions
What is prayer to you? Is prayer a part of your spiritual practice?

If Progressive (Liberal) Christians generally do not believe in an interventionist God, what does that mean for the way we pray? Are there ways to have integrity with our prayer practices in worship and our theology?
