Simple Prayer

Prayer has been one of the most important things I have done in my life. Even in my desert periods, one of which I am in the midst of. One forgets that prayer is not simply a one-sided discussion, you need to remember to listen. The answer is not always the one you are looking for but it is the one God knows is right for you and you accept it. One of my favorite examples to follow in the Christian path has been Saint Francis and our current pope seems to agree and I am glad. The method that Pope Francis apparently had quite a bit to do with is great in its simplicity. My other favorite to practice is the Jesus prayer…”Lord Jesus Christ, Son of God, have mercy on me, a sinner.”
