There are many ways to pray.

I think it’s safe to say that we all know that prayer is an important practice in Christianity. It’s a starting point to build a stronger relationship with Jesus. It’s an invitation for Jesus to come and share space with us. There’s really no way to get it wrong when we pray openly and sincerely and there are so many ways to pray:

Praise & Worship

Praying scripture

Praying on behalf of others

Meditation

Listening

Giving thanks

Asking humbly

Confession

Journaling

Breath prayers

. . . and many more!

There is also an approach to prayer where we can pray prayers that have already been written by others. Below is a list of resources you can look into with structured, pre-written prayers that you can use as you engage in the practice of prayer!
