What is your favorite form of prayer?

What is your favorite form of prayer?
St. Teresa of Avila said that we should pray as we can and not as we can't. That means that we can honor the way we are drawn to pray and not put ourselves down for what we consider mediocre prayer. Sometimes we feel that we can't pray as well as others do. How do we know? It doesn't really matter. God is working in each of our lives in a unique way. Our sole responsibility is to respond to what God is doing, to follow his direction, to let him do the leading. So how is God leading you right now? Are you drawn to the rosary? To pray with Scripture? To silence? To write out your prayer in a conversation with God? To journaling? To spiritual reading? To some other form of communication with God?

Do you have any secrets you can share about teaching your kids or grandkids about prayer?

  • Tuesday, September 10, 2013 9/10/2013 7:59 AM I pray the rosary and the Divine Mercy Chaplin (daily) in the evening in my one bed room senior unfurnished apartment and while praying the rosary I am actively walking around my unfurnished lack of furniture’s (I have one air bed mattress in the living room) in 1 bed room apartment from the living room to the 1 empty bed room; reciting the given day mystery’s of the rosary. Also, I pray the following litanies: The Blessed Virgin Mary, the Holy Ghost, and the Holy Name of Jesus and finish my prayers with the Mamore of Our Blessed Virgin Mary. Amen Shalom be with you and in Jesus name, Our Living God, bless everyone. Amen.

  • I pray informally when I awake in the morning and before I go to sleep at night. I will also recite the Lord's prayer at various times during the day. Occasionally, I will pray the Rosary as well.

  • I like to walk...long walks. At times, I will walk and say the rosary but most of the time during my customary walks I try to talk to God in a very personal way, to ponder over what is currently happening, how I am feeling, what I think I may need and always for how God can provide guidance, peace, clarity and comfort.
