Sacred Spaces for Personal Prayer
The ‘Taize Room’ with its beautiful rose window and quite ambience is a perfect place to sit and spend some time with the Lord in prayer. Reflective music and the soft candlelight help to create an atmosphere in which we can relax in the Lord’s presence.
Other rooms may also be available for quite personal prayer around a creative sacred space.
‘Pray as you can and not as you can’t. Take yourself as you find yourself; start from that’
Praying with Scripture
Six useful hints to try at home:
a passage of Scripture, have it marked and ready.
go somewhere you can be alone and uninhibited.
try to become relaxed and peaceful to foster harmony in body, mind and spirit.
become aware of the fact that you are in the company of God who loves us without limits.
read it slowly aloud and listen carefully and peacefully to it…. pause…. listen to your heart. Pause at words you are drawn to. Try to relax and try not to look for lessons or profound insights. Be content to be like a child who climbs into a caring person’s lap and listens to a story. During the prayer, especially before the end, chat with God in your own way.
this will help you to notice how God may have helped you or spoken to your heart during the prayer time.
