Perhaps you are more comfortable with prayers you know by heart. …like the Our Father.
Maybe you prefer an open dialogue, kind of an ad lib I guess you could say.
Is it in a moment of silence that you experience prayer?
In our darkest moments, when we can do nothing but weep….there is prayer, prayer without words, an outpouring of our heart and soul.
And in those moments of JOY when we yell "Thank you, God!"
Do you Journal? I find journaling to be a wonderful way to express my thoughts and prayers.
And if you sing, you have prayed TWICE. It doesn't matter what your voice can or can't do….music is the universal language.
Or maybe you use all of the above and more. I do depending upon the situation.
I have found opportunities for prayer while sitting in the frustrating backed up traffic….or long lines in the grocery stores….and while in those lines when I hear children screaming I usually send up a special prayer for the mom (and the child)….or when I see a rainbow.
You see, it really does not matter WHERE you find the moments to pray or HOW your prayer sounds or the LENGTH of prayer (I think it filters through our days and nights).
What really matters is the "connection."
I wish you peaceful moments……...
