In this section we provide forms of prayer and guidance. Each is a recommendation. Try them and see how they help you on your journey with God. Remember, though, often the best guidance and help can be found in being with those also on the journey in your local Church community and its ministers.
We hope you will grow in your spirituality and prayer life, to ways in which we may begin to deepen the sense of God in our lives and our experience of prayer.
Age-old advice underlines the importance of “praying as we can, not as we can’t”. One of the ways in which we may do this is to develop the awareness of our prayer being tied up with our daily life. “Life is to be a prayerful work and a working prayer” (Elias Chacour).
But prayer also includes the deliberate ‘turning aside’, corporately and personally, to give time to God. We practice giving attention to God so that life can be kept ‘God centered’.
