“Let’s be quiet, close our eyes and bow our heads.” Why is this the predominant form of prayer in Christian churches? It doesn’t work for me. I get sleepy.
These are some things that help me pray:
- walking or pacing
- looking around
- experimenting with body postures
- sitting in our hot tub outdoors
- praying out loud even when I am alone
- background music (I use a mellow jazz piano piece while driving)
What about you, what helps you pray?
