The Prayer of Praise

Prayer is a shared and common experience for most people. For those of us in evangelization, it is necessary for us to spend quality time in prayer. We cannot give what we don’t have, and we need to pray to get the graces we need to reach out to others. Andre, Angele and myself, Gerhard, have a conversation on prayer, in particular, the prayer of praise and how fundamental praise is to a healthy prayer life.

– “In the New Covenant, prayer is the living relationship of the children of God with their Father who is good beyond measure, with his Son Jesus Christ and with the Holy Spirit.” CCC 2565
– Prayer is fundamentally a part of a relationship
– We often see prayer as a vending machine, I put prayers in, and I get things in return
– When we approach prayer as a dialogue, it becomes more attractive and motivating
– the duty of prayer is there to help us stay committed to our relationship with Christ
– There is a battle of prayer
– Praise recognizes that God is God and that we are children of God
