What is Prayer?

  • Allow God’s presence in your life to surface.
  • Relate to God in a personal way.
  • Prayer is a dialogue of love. Listen.

Preparation for Prayer


Close your eyes.
Take a few deep breaths slowly.
Allow your thoughts to settle.

Focus your attention on feeling the air entering and leaving your nostrils.

Be aware that God’s Spirit is present within you —
that He is in every part of you.

Ask for graces
Speak to the Lord for the graces and blessings you need
e.g. to love more, to cope with concerns in your life.

Believe that God wants to give you what is best for you.
