Forms of Prayer

Forms of Prayer Defining Prayer Prayer is an expression of faith that allows us to communicate with God.

Q: What are some types of prayer that you know of? Prayer Categories Most prayers fall into one of the following two categories:

1) Formal prayers: based on traditions and teachings (eg. Our Father). 2) Informal prayers: based on experiences and moments in our life (eg. praying before a soccer game).

Prayer of Petition In these prayers, we ask God for things we need (eg. spirituality). Prayer of Thanksgiving These prayers express gratitude for

what we have. Eg. the gifts of life and love. Prayer of Intercession These are prayers that we offer on

behalf of other people (eg. friends, family, coworkers) Prayer of Blessing This form of prayer involves admitting that all of creation comes from God and

that we should follow Gods will throughout our life. It can also involve praying to a saint, to help us become more virtuous. Prayer of Praise

In this form of prayer, we recognize the nature of God. We praise God for how all-knowing, all seeing, and all powerful He is. We also recognize that our life depends on God.

Kneeling to Pray This tradition was a symbol of humbleness and honor when coming before a king or ruler. In recognition and honor to God, it may have been the

appropriate position to come before Him.
