Prayer is ‘a relationship between two persons, God and man, as they move towards each other’One day, a disciple of Jesus’ said to him, “Lord, teach us to pray” (Luke 11.1b NABRE).
This seems an odd request, as the disciple would have been versed in the Psalms and the traditional prayers of the Israelites.
But we often ask the same question. We know the Lord’s Prayer and table graces, but in times of need we search for the “right” words.
Never fear—the Jesus Prayer is at your disposal.
