The Prayer Process
The first sign of a Dynamic Catholic is prayer.
More specifically it is a daily commitment to prayer.
That means that they don’t hope they get around to praying each day. It is not merely a good intention; it is a priority. Daily prayer has become an ingrained habit for them.
Even more specific than a commitment, Dynamic Catholics have a routine of prayer. What does that mean? Well, they tend to pray at the same time every day. They tend to pray in the same place every day. And they tend to pray in the same way every day.
There are thousands of different methods and forms of prayer, but one I want to share with you today is called the Prayer Process.
The Prayer Process gives us a simple step-by-step process so we know exactly how to start praying.
The Prayer Process
1. Gratitude: Begin by thanking God in a personal dialogue for whatever you are most grateful for today.
2. Awareness: Revisit the times in the past twenty-four hours when you were and were not the-best-version-of-yourself. Talk to God about these situations and what you learned from them.
3. Significant Moments: Identify something you experienced today and explore what God might be trying to say to you through that event (or person).
4. Peace: Ask God to forgive you for any wrong you have committed (against yourself, another person, or him) and to fill you with a deep and abiding peace.
5. Freedom: Speak with God about how he is inviting you to change your life, so that you can experience the freedom to be the-best-version-of-yourself.
6. Others: Lift up to God anyone you feel called to pray for today, asking God to bless and guide them.
7. Finish by praying the Our Father.
Prayer is an integral part of spiritual health. How spiritually healthy are you today?
It's time to integrate a daily routine of prayer into your life.
