What is prayer?

Prayer is ‘not a technique but a relationship, a friendship, which can take different forms’:

Spending time reflectively with God – with thanks, with sorrow, with people on our heart
Chatting (arrow prayers) – talking (a quiet time) – intimacy (silence)
Offering the day to God at the start – practising the presence of God through the day – reviewing the day with God at night
Meditating – chewing the word of God slowly and prayerfully
Contemplating – silently looking, listening and just being.
