  • Pray wherever you feel the most comfortable. You will find that you can pray anytime, anywhere, anyhow. It may help to be in a place where the focus is on spirituality (such as a church or temple) or where the environment reminds you of your spiritual bond (like a natural setting, or a spot with a big view). You can choose to pray in the presence of others, or you can pray privately.
  • Get in a position that allows you the most connected. This depends on the belief you have, if any. Sometimes expressing your thoughts physically can make the experience more complete. There are many different ways to pray: sitting, kneeling, lying down on the floor, hands folded, clasped, or raised high, holding hands with other people, head bowed, dancing, prostrating, whirling, swaying, and so on.
  • Think and prepare before you pray. This also depends on belief, if any. Have an idea of what is on your mind and how you would like to sort things out. Some activities help to get people in the mindset of prayer. Prepare in whichever way you feel is comfortable or appropriate. People do this in a variety of ways around the world, including washing, anointing with oil, ringing a bell, burning incense or paper, lighting a candle, facing a specific direction, making the sign of the cross, or fasting. Sometimes the preparation is directed by someone else, such as a spiritual friend, a group prayer leader, or a teacher of your beliefs.
  • Then when you are ready….Pray…. You can pray by speaking out loud, thinking, singing, etc. Some prayers are recited from memory or read from a book, while other prayers are more like conversations. Your eyes can be opened or closed. You may open the prayer by calling on the God or Deity you are praying to, and asking for help.
  • Make the request, or ask the question. You can ask questions, seek strength, send good wishes to others, or give thanks. Perhaps the most basic forms of prayer are requests for help in becoming a good (or better) person, and requests that God direct your prayer.
  • End the prayer. Some people end or close the prayer with a special word (like “Amen”) or phrase (like “May God receive our prayers”) or a gesture (like bowing or making the sign of the cross), or simply by standing or sitting in silence for a minute or two.
  • Pray on a manner that is most comfortable and meaningful to you.

    November 27, 2008, Thursday, My 54th Birthday.

    I go to mass at St. Jude Chapel every Thursday for novena and mass, and every Saturday, for the Sunday anticipated mass. I Have been attending masses in this chapel with my family for almost 15 years now. There are many devotees who attends the mass and novena every Thursday, majority of them are students who are about to graduate, about to get board exams, and some who has personal intentions. Befor I forget, this Chapel was established by the Chinese-Filipino Community. There are plenty of people who offer masses for personal intentions, that is already common even during Saturdays. Most of the time, the Chinese and some filipinos who are one way or the other has connections with the administration always carry the Chalice, bottles of Wine and Water for the offertory. For more than 5 years, I did not get the chance to be asked to bring any of those.

    On this particular day, my birthday, as usual I attended the mass with my husband but even if it’s my birthday I am not that happy because the only money I have in my purse is P100.00 and donation for the Mass is P50.00. It is still three days before we receive allotment from my son, and I have a daughter who goes to school yet, so whatever I have in my purse is for the daily needs of the family, not even enough. What made me sad is not because I have no money, but because I can not have a thanksgiving mass offered for my special day. People were lining up paying for special masses for themselves or for other.

    My husband and I was seated in the chairs just in front of the chapel’s gate, permanent seat in the chapel since it’s fresher there. I prayed very sincerely and deeply. I thanked God for my 54th birthday. I told Him how lucky I am to be celebrating another birthday and I also asked Him to forgive me for not having a special thanksgiving mass for this day because I have no money to pay for the mass, but promised that Saturday, I surely will be able to pay for a special thanksgiving mass. I was so quiet because I was talking to God. The priest arrived and soon the mass started.

    After we were seated, one of those in charge of the masses approached me and my husband and said “for tonight, the two you will bring the Chalice, wine and water for the offertory, will you please do it?” MY GOD, it really gave me goosebumps, my whole body was in heat, God heard me, it was His way of saying “I Heard you, it’s okay”. I was in tears really, because in His goodness He made me feel Him on my special day.

    If you will ask me what’s so special about that? Only those who pay for the special mass are offered to bring the Chalice, Wine and Water in the offertory, and most of the time, the privilege is given to Chinese. This is just one story of miracle in my life, there are so many more, but this one is very special in my heart.
