"True prayer," wrote St. Augustine, "is nothing but love."

Four Basic Forms of Prayer

  1. Blessing and Adoration (praising God)
  2. Prayer of Petition (asking for what we need, including forgiveness)
  3. Prayer of Intercession (asking for what others need)
  4. Prayer of Thanksgiving (for what God has given and done)

Find a quite place and time.  Prayer can be done anywhere but it is good to have a place that is conducive to relaxing and focusing our attention on God.  Finding a regular time to pray each day can also be helpful to making prayer an important daily routine. 

Take time to listen.  God does speak to us in prayer but we need to listen with our hearts.  Be open to what God is telling you rather than just on what you want to or expect to hear. Prayer is an ongoing, developing relationship with God.
