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
Psalm 96: 11–13.
Let the heavens be glad,
and let the earth rejoice;
let the sea roar, and all that fills it;
let the field exult, and everything in it.
Then shall all the trees of the forest
sing for joy before the Lord;
for he is coming,
for he is coming to judge the earth.
He will judge the world with righteousness,
and the peoples with his truth.
Great God, Who makes the sun to rise, and opens the heavens Hear the cry of the people Who sow in hope for rain, but reap only despair Hear the cry of the people Seeking shelter from the storm, their hopes and homes submerged Hear the cry of the people, When creation is hitting back, with rage and resistance Give us hope, grant us salvation, Give us a new relationship with creation With reverence to tend this gift from You And say once again of the earth and all you created.
It is GOOD.
