Step 11 is all about improving our conscious contact with God. This is done through prayer (talking with God) and meditation (listening to God).
But often our prayers are more of a monologue - with us doing all the talking. In the Twelve Steps we are learning to give up control of our lives, turn our will and care of our lives over to God. This takes trust and trust is built as we get to know someone more intimately. This is best done by spending quality time with that someone. In the context of Step 11 that someone is God as we understand Him.
‘But when you pray, go into your room, close the door and pray…’ Matthew 6:6
