Center on God

When entering into a time of prayer it’s often helpful to spend a moment quietening down to centre on God.

Preparation                                                                                        

You might like to light a candle, hold a holding cross, put on a piece of music, read a scriptural text, hymn or poem or simply sit and relax to assist you in prayer.            

Choose your place of prayer.                                                          

Make yourself comfortable.                                                             

Consider what you want to say to the Lord: what do you desire.                      

How are you feeling: what is your frame of mind?                                                                 

Entry into prayer                                                                            

Become quiet and still - relax.                                                         

Try to put aside any distractions.                                                                          

Ask the Holy Spirit to guide your prayer.                                                          

If you have one read, your chosen text several times.

Prayer time                                                                                     

Speak to the Lord in your own words

or if you prefer set prayers.

Slow exit from prayer                                                                        

Perhaps finish with the Lords’s Prayer, the Grace, a favourite alternative prayer, a prayer of your own or a moment of silence. Leave your place of prayer thanking God for the time he has spent with you.

Reflection after prayer                                                                           

If possible, do this in a different place.                                 

Slowly recall the time of prayer:                                     

Was it good to be at prayer?                                     

Did you learn something; maybe you feel that the Lord was asking something of you?   

Notice how you feel now. Some people find it helpful to record your thoughts.​
