How To Pray?

 Q: I’m a Catholic, but my parents never taught me how to pray “properly”.

Help please? I’m looking for Catholic prayers. Thanks.

A: For a complete selection of traditional Catholic prayers, for just about every occasion, go here:

When you want to speak to God in your own words, I suggest the following prayer formula:

1) Give God thanks and praise.

2) Ask God’s forgiveness for all your sins, and promise to try to do better, next time.

3) Ask God for everything you need, taking as much time as necessary, while explaining your needs in as much detail as possible.  

4) Believe that God has heard your prayers and that he will certainly respond to them in the best possible way.

Repeat.
