How do you pray? Some people use words while others prefer silence. Some use ‘formal’ and memorised prayers while others ‘engage’ in a conversation with God. However we enter into prayer, it is comforting to note that God “will be gracious to you when you cry out, as soon as He hears, He will answer you” (Is. 30:19). Since there is this assurance that God listens to us, it is our task to ensure our prayer is meaningful by deliberately paying attention, and focussing our mind and heart fully on His loving presence.
Hear O Lord, and answer me. Accept this time of praise and worship that I offer to You with my entire being. May my prayer find favour with You, as You lead me by Your love. Amen.
