What is prayer?
How do you do it?
Why do you do it?
Looking at prayer can mean a lot of things to a lot of people. Surf over to Beauty80’s blog and you will see prayer can be anything you would like it to be.
Do you feel that prayer can be anything?
The Catholic leadership provide guides for prayer.
Is it helpful to have a guide?
If you try to define prayer it always seems like a verb. specifically the verb “to communicate.”
So if prayer is an action word meaning to communicate, it implies something is happening between two parties. Communication 101 says there has to be a sender and a receiver. Communication also implies a two way activity. If you are going to be a sender, doesn’t that also mean you are responsible to be a receiver also? This is two halves to a whole prayer. Simple math.
The question now becomes; do you send out your communication (prayers)? same question worded a bit differently.
Oh, and do you receive communication back? Hmmm…
