Prayer Resources

Prayer is defined in the Catechism as the raising of one’s mind and heart to God or the requesting of good things from God.

Prayer is a surge of the heart; it is a simple look turned toward heaven, it is a cry of recognition and of love.

Prayer is simply a conversation with God, a “heart-to-heart” throughout the day with our lover.

The Power of Prayer - Fr. Mike Schmitz

On Prayer - Mark Hart

A great format for praying as a family is ACTS:

A is for Adoration, C is for Contrition, T is for Thanksgiving, and S is for Supplication.

A is for Adoration or giving praise to God

  • Adoration exalts the greatness of the Lord who made us and the almighty power of the Savior who sets us free. Simply come to God as you are. Bring everything to God. Saying, “Jesus, I praise you and I love you.”

C is for Contrition

  • Contrition is having sorrow for our sin and asking for God’s forgiveness. Saying, “Jesus, I am sorry [insert specific offense here].”

T is for Thanksgiving for the blessings in our life

  • It is important to give thanks to God for all things and people. Saying, “Jesus, I thank you.”

S is for Supplication or intercession

  • The vocabulary of supplication in Sacred Scripture is expressed in terms like: ask, beseech, plead, invoke, entreat, cry out, even “struggle in prayer.” Saying, “Jesus, help [insert name and specific need or want].”
