From the author...
When I was young I was taught that "prayer is talking to God." Since then, I have learned that to pray is to develop a relationship with God. There are many ways to encourage, sustain, and enhance a relationship. We can pray in spoken words or silence, with our actions or in our quiet receptiviy, by singing or with physical gestures. When we pray we bring our whole self to God. No part of life is left out. Some of the suggestions in this booklet may not seem like "prayer," but if you look closely, each one is a source of being more intimately united with God.
Prayer involves a place, posture, time, and intention. Choose your Lenten prayer place. Decide on a posture for each day (whether standing, sitting, kneeling, etc.). Sometimes I will give specific suggestions for this. Settle on the time you will pray each day. Finally, before each day's prayer, renew the intention of growing in your relationship with God.
