People tend to think of prayer as something everyone knows how to do—but them. We come from a culture where prayer has been a thing for a long time, and most people are timid or unsure about prayer. It can feel kind of weird. People get worried they are doing it wrong. “Do I kneel, sit, clasp my hands, lift my hands….Are there certain words I need to use? Is it working? I’m not sure it’s working…” Mother Theresa said, ‘you learn how to pray by praying’ and she’s right. And by ‘better’ I don’t mean you prayers become fancier or more effective at getting what you ask for. Prayer is not ultimately about getting what you ask for. God has already promised to provide for those who seek Him. It’s about knowing God a little better and opening your heart to Him.
