So where do we start? 1000 ways to pray? Maybe the best place is Jesus’ response to his disciples request “teach us to pray.” While what we call “The Lord’s Prayer” is well known and may to some feel overused, it stands as a model for the key ingredients to prayer. The great thing is since it is so familiar, it’s a great prayer to pray when you wake up in the middle of the night and can’t sleep or when you are driving somewhere. Praying the themes or putting it in your own words personalizes for you instead of just repetition.
