Prayer Tips by Salvador Wee, SJ True prayer is more than talking to God…. 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.
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.
Prayer Tips by Salvador Wee, SJ Attachment to persons, things, ideas, habit and comfortable ways are obstacles to God and the truth. Negative attitudes …are blocks to God. Simplicity of life is very important for spiritual growth. Prayer is not the end, but a means to God.
Prayer Tips by Salvador Wee, SJ The authenticity of prayer is seen in how we relate with others. Christian prayer is centered on the life and teachings of Jesus Christ in the Gospels. There is no fixed way of praying.
