It is contact with, listening to and learning from God. The primary focus in prayer is God. Prayer is not limited to words, rules and practices. Through prayer, we slow down to connect with something greater than us humans.
  2. 2. Prayer Tips by Salvador Wee, SJ True prayer asks God to “teach us your ways”…. Prayer [must be] transformative [or else it is just] a practice, a habit, a tradition, a duty…. Since God is spirit, prayer should make us more spiritual. Silence, solitude and surrender are helps to prayer.
