Whatever ... Ah well ... and any other definitions of prayer

Yesterday morning I really enjoyed prayer for the day by Martyn Percy.
He began by talking about Anne Lamott's description of morning prayer: "whatever" and evening prayer "ah well".
Towards the end he said something along the lines of prayer doesn't change things but it changes the way we face things.
Perhaps that's why I keep on trying it.
Anyway, well worth a listen if you've got two minutes to spare. Here.
