Prayer and Meditation


Prayer

What is prayer? In simple terms, prayer is our inner dialogue, the term that is used to describe asking for divine help from God. Most commonly, prayers are for the higher good of yourself, your loved ones or others who need help, guidance or protection.


Meditation


The companion to prayer is meditation. What is meditation? Meditation is the term used for the act of being still and quieting the endless chatter inside our heads so that divine answers and/or inspiration from God can reach us.


The Lord's Prayer 

Our Father, which art in heaven, hallowed be Thy name.
Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done, on earth as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread.
And forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us.
And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil.
For Thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever and ever.

Amen.


23rd Psalm 


The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want.
He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: He leadeth me beside the still waters.
He restoreth my soul: He leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for His name's sake.
Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death,
I will fear no evil: for Thou art with me; Thy rod and thy staff comfort me.
Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies:
Thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over.
Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life:
and I will dwell in the house of the Lord for ever.

Amen.
