How Do You Pray?
There is no right or wrong way. That is the beauty of it. God simply wants us to come to Him as we are.
Here are some ideas.
We can pray “wow” prayers. We praise the beautiful day. We praise God’s creation and it’s magnificence – ocean, lakes, rivers, ponds, streams, mountains, hills, deserts, wetlands, waterfalls, trees, forests, sunsets, sunrises, stars, night sky, moon, all of nature. We simply stand in awe and marvel at its beauty.
We can think of God as our mother or father. He is one we come to and talk to. This means we share whatever we need. This includes: complaining, mourning, lamenting, praising, thanking, asking. There is nothing we cannot share with our Father. Our Father loves us.
We can think of God as within us. We are divine beings. The Holy Spirit is within each of us. We can state affirmations such as I am _____. Jesus said he was light and that we too were the the light. We are simply getting in touch with our oneness with God.
We can sit in silence. We do all three above with an “unsaying” prayer. We silently sit in awe and wonder before our Father and become one with Him.
