Prayer Made Simple
Discover prayers, meditations and contemplations that speak to your immediate needs.
When you need a quick perspective, or need a lifesaver moment, tap into a prayer that meets your immediate need.
A prayer has five parts:
1. calls upon God, using the name for God that relates to the subject of the prayer
2. says something about what is known about God and your concern,
3. expresses your need,
4. resolves to ask or thank God, or turn the issue over to God.
5. Ends with a big AMEN.
The prayers often will include stories or images from Holy Scripture related to the prayer topic. Savor the prayers and truly allow yourself to mean each word. Like singing your favorite song, prayers that speak your needs are to be prayed over and over again whenever you are feeling that longing.
Prayers on Pray Each Day are about 2-3 minutes and specific to your need.
We offer a daily morning and evening prayer frameworks also. In those prayers you will hear inspiring Scripture and then be guided to pray for different people and issues in your life. These are based on the ancient outline of prayer from St. Benedict.
Prayers from Scripture
You can also rest well with favorites such as the 23rd Psalm and The Lord's Prayer.
When you have a larger concern that needs Jesus’ wisdom and healing presence.
First is to become grounded in your breath. Your breath is your sacred gift from God. Gotta’ start there, know it, feel it, be aware of how close God blesses you. Let’s face it, if you can’t slow down and be with your breath, the most intimate gift from God, you are not going to be able to hear anything God has to tell you.
Breath comes first. Ultimately, always.
The next step is to invite Jesus into your heart. Imagine you are sitting there with him and tell him what is on your heart. The meditation topic you choose from Pray Each Day will guide you in these steps.
Now in the presence of Jesus, observe the energy of your concern. Step back, notice as much as you can about the feelings, appearance, and details of the spiritual energy of your concern. You will be asked to describe it in detail to Jesus. You can do that aloud or silently. Try not to add more emotion, just describe what you notice. Fully bring your concern to Jesus.
Jesus will transform the spiritual energy of what you are dealing with. You may want to repeat the meditation several times over the course of several days if it’s a particularly challenging issue. You will notice the negative energy dissolving and changing. It’s important to observe it with Jesus and tell him what you are noticing or the changes in feelings you are having.
This is Christian meditation: fully give your concern to Jesus and be in His presence with your concern. Let Christ’s presence redeem and strengthen you. Your fears and concerns will transform.
Meditations on Pray Each Day are about 7-15 minutes in length.
A contemplation is sitting in the presence of God for a generous period of time and allowing the Holy Spirit to teach you about a word, feeling, or image.
You will hear a word or phrase or passage of Holy Scripture. Let the words resonate in your heart. Don't force thoughts but let thoughts and feelings about the passage, or word, swirl around coming to rest in your heart. During the pauses let the music serve as an open door to let the Holy Spirit into your mind and heart.
This practice comes from the tradition of ‘lectio divina’ meaning divine reading or divine word. Christians read and ponder a word or phrase of scripture, waiting in reverence and being open to what the Holy Spirit inspires them about the word or phrase they pondered.
These are wonderful to listen to as you end the day, ready for sleep. You want to be relaxed and open when contemplating. It's perfectly fine to fall asleep while in the middle of a contemplation. The words of wisdom will continue to nestle in your mind.
Beware of the incredible power this prayer practice generates. The meaning of words will never be the same again. Words become alive with power.
Contemplations are longer, 14-35 minutes.
