Prayer

Prayer is the turning of our awareness to the presence of God within our lives: it is the movement of heart and mind to this presence. Praying is talking to God. We can talk to God in many ways.

Why pray?

Relationships thrive on good communication. To grow in love and friendship we need to communicate, not just openly but often!  When we pray, we express our desire to grow closer to God. Through prayer we can praise, thank, ask, cry, argue and express many emotions. We can speak, listen, sing, chant, dance, smile, embrace or just sit with our God.
