Prayer is simply responding to God. It’s about turning our hearts towards God: bringing us to God, and God to us. It may involve talking or listening, stillness or action. There are no special words to say, and there’s no required way to kneel or stand.
You can pray with others or alone, you can pray in church, walking down the street, in the shower. You can whisper, you can sing, you can shout. Sometimes you don’t even need words at all. Anybody can pray, anytime, anywhere. God is always listening.
