The process of marination not only adds flavor, but actually tenderizes the tougher cuts of meats and vegetables. The process actually breaks down the tissues of the meat. In doing so, the element of meat becomes more absorbent and moist. Prayer can have a similiar effect, specifically the type of prayer known as "Lectio Divina." This type of prayer postures us in a way to become saturated with the presence of God. We become more absorbent of the things He is trying to communicate to us. We become more like Him. Flavor is added to our being. This message "marinate," is the second message in the series Bon Appetit.
