Prayer is …

What is prayer?

Prayer is so simple, yet there are so many facets to it.  So, we shall be exploring what ‘Prayer is…’ in this series of posts.

The aim of this series will be to help you think about what prayer is, about how we relate to God in prayer, and about what prayer means to each of us.

As I get older I am able to reflect more on prayer.  In some cases, I consciously understand things I used to take for granted, in other cases, there are new things that I am discovering about prayer.  All these thoughts and musing I will share here.

Here are a few examples of things that ‘Prayer is…’, that I will explore:

  • Prayer is … Conversation;
  • Prayer is … Worship;
  • Prayer is … Intercession;
  • Prayer is … Liturgy.

I will look at many more things, and if you have any ideas of things about prayer you would like me to explore then please leave your suggestions in a comment on this post.

What does prayer mean to you?  Has your conception of prayer changed over time?  Are you growing in prayer or are you stuck in a rut?  Let’s look forward to growing in the adventure that is PRAYER!
