Prayer

Prayer

The Lord is near to all who call on him, to all who call on him in truth.  Ps145:18

Prayer is as easy as breathing, even the youngest of children can do it.  And yet even the most mature of Christians are still asking ‘Lord, teach us to how to pray’.

Prayer is essentially the word we use to describe talking to God.  It is about relating to God and can take many forms – we tend to think of speaking, but it’s also about listening, singing, writing or painting and even silence can be prayer.

We can pray for ourselves or for others (sometimes called ‘intercession’).
