Are there any resources to help me pray?

I know that most people pray from time to time, ‘God, if you’re there, help me know the right thing to do’ – that sort of thing. But I’m wondering if there is more to it than that and I’m interested to learn. Where do I start?

 Daily Prayer
 Post a prayer

Finding a pattern for praying can help. Many people follow a discipline that helps them develop a routine and various daily prayers (or offices) are said by millions of people around the world. Try this one; it mixes words from the bible with meditations and practical action.

You may want to pray a prayer right now. There is nothing stopping you doing that this second. If you want to make it a bit more formal and symbolic, why not try this module and light a virtual candle – like you could do if you were visiting a Cathedral or church.

 How to pray
 Celtic prayers

These downloadable PDF’s are full of suggestions to help you pray. Ideas like writing your prayers down in a prayer diary, finding inspiration from the gospels or a model to help you forgive someone who has hurt you.

Why not explore the tradition of Celtic prayers which were based very much on simple every-day things.

 St Francis’ prayers
 Lectio Divina

Other people have composed and written prayers that you can pray along with as you read them. These are some of the prayers written by St Frances of Assisi.

Is latin for divine reading. The idea is to find inspiration for prayer from reading sacred writing. There are more instructions here.
