Last night before going to sleep, along with my normal prayers I prayed with my prayer rope. I first said The Angelic Salutation or the “Hail Mary”, which is a little for Orthodox Christians, and then the “Jesus Prayer.” A sense of calm came over me last night as I prayed and today I looked up a “General Rule of Prayer” and am going to try and follow this throughout Lent. All can use help during prayer and prayer. Even Christ was asked to teach us to pray and His prayer is very simple and direct. Even when we don’t have good earthly fathers or dads, we have the consummate father in God.
