It has been said that we learn to pray by praying, not by reading about it. That said, speaking with others and listening to their understanding of prayer can help us reflect upon our own experiences.

How to Pray is therefore a collection of thoughts and ideas to help us think about prayer, especially if we are new to it, returning to it or simply want to refresh our prayer life.

Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to


Philippians 4:6

Prayer Calendar:

Luke18 : 10–14."Two men went up to the temple to pray, one a Pharisee and the other a tax collector.  The Pharisee, standing by himself, was praying thus, "God, I thank you that I am not like other people: thieves, rogues, adulterers, or even like this tax collector.  I fast twice a week; I give a tenth of all my income.'  But the tax collector, standing far off, would not even look up to heaven, but was beating his breast and saying, "God, be merciful to me, a sinner!'  I tell you, this man went down to his home justified rather than the other; for all who exalt themselves will be humbled, but all who humble themselves will be exalted."


Almighty God

Before your throne none of us can stand without humility

for You see into our souls

You know all the things we think but never say

all the unworthy pretensions and plans that we harbour

thinking to gain advantage

teach us the humility which the Pharisee lacked

so that we might overcome our pride and find

ourselves in the right with God

through your grace
