With combined hearts and voices, we pray for the needs of others.
We learned prayers as children for dinner and bedtime. We heard prayers repeated at church. Some of us wonder if we are praying right or if God even listens. Some of us have never tried and speculate about how to start. There is no right or wrong way to pray. We want to offer the new and the experienced a variety of ways to pray.
Nothing Is Impossible, With the Help of GOD!
We all have those days when nothing seems to be going right: your kids aren’t listening, your boss needs that project on his desk ASAP, your dog just started throwing up on your new carpet, and there is a laundry list of household chores that need to get done. When you feel overloaded with responsibility and have no time to spare, that is the time to “take time” and pray.
Prayer of the Month: Breathing Prayer.
This is probably the easiest type of praying. It is a matter of saying short phrases while slowly breathing in and out. For example,
While breathing in: Nothing Is Impossible
While breathing out: With the Help of GOD! (Repeat as many times as needed to calm the body and to focus)
This Month’s Challenge: Find a time and place where you can pray. It can be in the early morning or the late evening. But make it the same time each day.
If you have a prayer need please let us know, and we will add you to our list. Concerns are confidential.
