The Power of Prayer

Light of the World

As Christians we believe in the power of prayer but we often find it hard to know what to say and when to say it. This month let’s think about one aspect of prayer:

Listening prayer:

Find a comfy seat, sit down and relax.
Try to clear your mind of all the worries and concerns you have.
Listen for the voice of God speaking to you.

I hear you ask- How do I stop myself falling asleep?
Sometimes it helps to focus on something, perhaps a lighted candle, or a flower.
You might want to open your bible and read a passage and listen for God speaking to you through that passage.

There is no right or wrong way, we each pray in a different way but God is still listening.
