Are there good ways to pray—either alone or with others—or does anything go when we’re conversing with God? How do we go about determining the healthiest ways to pray?
The first thing to remember is that prayer is about being in a relationship with the one to whom we’re praying. It can’t be prayer if we’re only talking to ourselves. Communication with God involves more than just talking.
Prayer has four interwoven dimensions: speaking, listening, contemplation and community. Understanding these dimensions can help us become more faith-filled pray-ers and guide us into healthy ways of praying.
