This leaflet describes different types of prayer and practical points to help us pray.
Jesus’ disciples said to him: “Lord, teach us to pray” (Luke 11:1). Today, too, many people find themselves asking the same thing. The Catholic Church has a wonderful tradition of prayer on which to draw. Unfortunately, many Catholics still see prayer as something complicated and difficult, or reserved for ‘professionals’ (perhaps priests and religious sisters). This leaflet dispels this myth, describing different types of prayer and practical points to help us pray.
