Many are the people who ask me how to pray. I refer them to what Jesus, the Christ, told his disciples. I remind them to go into their closet, close the door and have their most restful, most comfortable, most personal, conversation with God.
Still people persist in their questions of seeking, what are the words, as if there is a recipe from my private collections that will Divinely order and bless and ease their life/lives.
Humbly, I remember Prayer is as personal as the breath that breathes the words of the consciousness that became the breath, all from the Divine.
That said, I will continue with phrases, rememberances, and words that are more neutral, equal opportunity, bold and consistent in my day to day, moment to moment prayers. Some phrasing is from scriptural basis that has been placed in/on my heart, other is from other sources inspired to my consciousness by the Divne Holy Spirit. As Jane Austen might say: my own Internal Infallible Guide. Strongly I encourage readers to seek and know the thrill of finding and hearing and reading, the Divine.
