'Lord, teach us to pray'

Post  AngelicSmile on Mon 17 Mar 2008, 1:19 pm

That request was put to Jesus by his own disciples - which should encourage us if we feel we don't know how to pray. They needed help, and so do we, especially at troubled times such as these.

But there isn't just one right way to pray - what works well for one person may not for another. The following thoughts are offered just as guidelines which may be useful:

  • When we pray we come before God with the world on our hearts. We are also offering ourselves to be in some small way channels of love and peace in God's world.
  • We can be honest with God, and say exactly how we feel, or even just sit in silence. God already knows what is in our hearts and minds.
  • It might help to find a quiet space.
  • You may find that you can say just what you want to, using your own words. If you are short of words and don't know what to pray, ask God to help you through Holy Spirit, what to pray and what words to us.
