Imitation is the Greatest form of Emulation
You know when you start spending a lot of time with a person? Maybe a new friend or a new boyfriend/girlfriend and you start to take on some of their mannerisms and start to talk or laugh the same? It just sort of happens when you spend inordinate amounts of time with a person listening to and talking with them. You start to use words they use and say things they say in the way they would say them. I wonder...does the same thing happen when we spend enough time talking to God in prayer? Perhaps this is one reason he asks us to "Pray Always" or to "Pray Continually". Perhaps in talking with Him, spending more time with Him, we will find it's just as it is with our friends -- all too soon we will begin to emulate Him and to become more like Him, almost without noticing.
