If you believe in God but don’t know how to pray, begin with silent prayer. The Bible says, “Be still, and know that I am God.”
First, get away from all distractions. Find a scenic place to sit, or just close your eyes, and be still.
Second, let your mind wander and wonder – to a sunrise, the fragile loveliness of nature, or goodness you’ve seen in people. Imagine the source from which all good comes. Let the vision of God grow large in you mind and in your soul. The greatest saints have found God in such prayerful moments.
The Beginner’s Prayer is simply this: to enjoy thinking about God.
