This the second in a three-part series: When Marguerite Beck was 5, she prayed for God to make it snow. Though infrequent, snow in the foothills of La Crescenta wasn't unheard of. She awoke the next day to a blanket of white covering her neighborhood. Raised by a devoutly Catholic mother, Marguerite prayed often after that. "Mass every Sunday," she told me. "No meat on Fridays, confession at least every two weeks and usually daily mass during Lent. All major church holidays were attended in full regalia.

Prayer is one of the most difficult, most intimate things you can do. You open yourself up and sometimes admit things about yourself to thin air that you wouldn?t tell anyone. It?s also one of the harder things to explain. I?ve already had to scrap twice what I had originally planned for this week?s column. I?ve had to consider all the questions: How do you pray? Why do you pray? When do you pray? With whom? Who prays more? Who prays less? Who prays not at all? And above all: What is prayer?

Daniel Henderson, a Christian pastor in Atlanta, believes many faithful people still ?don?t know how to pray effectively,? according to a recent article on CNN.com. He says most Christians pray during a crisis or pray a grocery list, ?making God a lifeline of last resort.?

Henderson is right.

The Muslim holy month of fasting begins today and, for the first time, local followers of the faith will have a nearby location to meet and practice their traditions together in what can otherwise be a lonely and challenging period of self-restraint, community leaders said. Muslims abstain from food, drink and sexual activity during daylight hours for the month of Ramadan, which follows the lunar calendar and will last until Sept. 19 this year. While local Muslims have either gone without attending traditional evening prayer services or have driven to other mosques in the past, this year will be different, said Mahmoud Nouh, spokesman for the Islamic Center of Glendale.

CENTRAL GLENDALE — The call to prayer spilled into the hallways of the Pacific Community Center on Friday as about 100 area Muslims gathered for a new payer service they hoped would fill a local void. For years, Muslims in Burbank, Glendale and La CaƱada have chosen not to attend weekly Friday prayer services at mosques that were too far away, they said. Most couldn’t leave work to drive to the nearest mosque — the Islamic Center of Southern California on Vermont Avenue in Los Angeles — for what often became a three-hour commitment involving traffic, prayer service and lunch, they said.
