Concentration in Prayer

Brother John Kilmakos said, “When you pray, forget how you may appear to others. Concentrate entirely on your prayer, withdrawing into your heart. Demons fear spiritual concentration more than thieves fear dogs.”

    Fr. Stephen,

    Does there exists an analogy between learning to pray & riding a bike? I can read about biking, know interesting facts about bikes, but until I participate in the act, until I stumble & fall, then I cannot know.
