Often, I get asked, “What do I need to pray?” Normally, this question is asked when a person desires a more intimate prayer life. Unfortunately, many people approach praying from a right/wrong dichotomy. One thinks there is a right way and a wrong way to pray. Therefore, one overly focuses on what the words need to be.
If I’m describing you, I offer you St. Jeanne de Chatal, Co-Foundress of the Order of the Visitation (early 17th Century). She spent the majority of her life as a spiritual guide for so many. She said, “Sometimes put yourself very simply before God, certain of his presence everywhere, and without any effort, whisper very softly to his sacred heart whatever your own heart prompts you to say.”
Do this continually and you will not have to worry about if it is right or wrong. Do this continually and you will have a very meaningful intimate prayer life.
