When you pray…

Have you ever examined the way you pray?  When do you pray?  Do you sit? Do you stand?  Are you at the end of a long day, looking back in your mind’s eye as you drift off to sleep?  Do you pray in the midst of people?  Are you alone?  Are your eyes open?  Do you pray silently?  Do you voice your prayer?

Consider these questions.  And then consider this:  When you pray, you are one of millions of other human beings who has found their way to speak to God and to listen to what God is saying to you.  One of millions.


“Thank you God for the gift of prayer.  Lead us into your mystery this day, that as we seek to find you, you will be made known to us.”  Amen.
