In this video, Fr. Mike Schmitz offers some suggestions on how to pray. Prayer is not an option for Christians. Prayer requires putting in some effort.
- When. Decide when you are going to pray. Have a set time. But make it a time which is appropriate for prayer. And make it what you build your day around.
- Where. Pick a place where you will be comfortable and attentive. And it should be accessible to you.
- What or How. Choose one thing to do during prayer and stick with it for several weeks. After your time is up, decide if you should continue or try something different.
- Why. Prayer doesn’t just give us answers. The point of prayer is to build a relationship with God.
