Some people find it difficult to pray so this page attempts to help a little. Imagine prayer as a grand old chat with a very dear friend. You'd tell him or her all your bits of news, what's worrying you or what's happening in your life. You'd probably apologize for not keeping in better contact or for neglecting to do something they needed doing, or for losing your temper with them, or whatever.

Now picture that friend as the Lord. Talk to Him just as you would to your old friend. He waits for us every minute of the day to speak to Him. Often our prayers are mechanical and said by rote. We use novenas and prayers so often that we sometimes forget that we should be speaking them as if to our friend and even staying silent at times to listen too.

Lovely simple prayers which can be repeated over and over again are little aspirations whispered throughout the day to help us keep the mind God-focussed, here are just a few:

"Lord, in Your Mercy hear my prayer"

"I give you my heart God, use it as You will"

"In You O Lord do I place my trust"

"My God, I love You"

"Lord I believe, help my unbelief!"

"My Lord and my God"

"O God have mercy on me a sinner"

"Jesus Mercy, Mary help"

"Lord Jesus Christ, Son of the Living God, have mercy on me a sinner"

"Jesus meek and humble of heart, make my heart like unto Thine"

"Blessed be Jesus, true God and true Man"

"Sacred Heart of Jesus I place all my turst in Thee"

"Aleluia Lord"

"Amen Lord"

By getting into the habit of whispering these little prayers during the day we start to open a channel directly to God. This in turn frees us to be able to have the real conversations, the proper chats, the serious discussions. But remember the old saying - we have 2 ears and only 1 mouth! In silence, relax and listen too. Let the Holy Spirit speak to you in your heart.

Moytura has several other sites with a 'Christian flavour'. Prayerful Thoughts & Thoughtful Prayers is a little collection of prayers and thought-provoking stories, and a few links to some other really nice websites. Reflections for Lent offers a daily meditation for the 40 days of lent and the week leading into Easter. As part of my Journey section of the website join me to learn a little of the Early Christian Church in Ireland by visiting Clonmacnoise, founded by St. Ciaran on the banks of the River Shannon in the 6th. Century. Read about Saint Brendan the Navigator who started a Monastic settlement in the tiny village of Clonfert in the 6th century, located on the Galway/Offaly/Tipperary border. Travel on my journeys to two of Canada's most famous Catholic Shrines - Saint Anne de Beaupré and Cap de la Madeleine, both on the shores of the Saint Lawrence river in Quebec. Finally I welcome you to come with me to see a little of Medugorje, a peaceful haven in a war-torn country - Bosnia-Herzogovina. Please also pay a visit to  Moytura's Irish Bookshop where you can find books on the history of Christianity in IrelandIrish Prayers and Celtic Christianity
