In prayer we call to God. If we call with love, again and again, knowing without doubt that He hears us, He will always respond. Prayer is not about asking, for God knows our needs before we even ask. Instead, prayer is about our heart. John Bunyan once said, “In prayer it is better to have a heart without words than words without a heart.”
When you pray to God, let your love for Him well up within you. Affirm your relationship with Him. Then, when you speak your prayer, He will hear you and will answer you. Whether you pray with prepared prayers or spontaneous prayers, alone or with a group, let your devotion be the net that captures His attention, for He can not ignore the true call from your heart.
REQUEST A PRAYER
Although commonly associated with eastern religions, meditation is an ancient practice that has been used by Christians for two thousand years, particularly by monastics. St. John of the Cross and St. Teresa of Avila wrote extensively about meditation. St. Padre Pio once remarked, “through the study of books one seeks God; by meditation one finds him.”
There are many approaches to meditation, but the central theme of meditation is focused attention or concentration on an aspect of God. It is through stilling the mind from the flood of thoughts that typically run through our minds that we enter the Temple of God that dwells within us. As St. Padre Pio said, “if we are calm and persevering, we shall find not only ourselves, but our souls, and with that, God Himself.”
