Prayer 101: How to Start Talking to God
Strong From the Start: Daily Catholic Prayer
As a little kid in primary school, I can remember prayer often felt like a wish list at Christmas where you asked for a load of gifts and then waited for some hidden being to magically make them appear. But things changed, and so here are ten practices I was taught that flipped my understanding of prayer on its head and revolutionised both my prayer and my life. Through prayer, we create within ourselves the stillness of mind and body that allows our soul to be receptive to God and be aware of his presence. From here, our lives begin to be effected as well. This eventually results in us living in a state of constant fulfilling communion with God, even when experiencing huge torment — a feat attested to by the martyrs. All people are different and will find that different forms of prayer are more natural or easy for them to build a relationship with God through. There are literally hundreds of ways of praying — rosary , praise and worship , the divine office and meditation are just a few awesome ones to mention.

The easiest way to start or re-start! This last point is very important!

You pray with the flow and rhythm of your ordinary day to develop a habit of daily Catholic prayer. This is a good thing.
