|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,
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"
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.
