A simple way to pray

I often teach there are four basic types of prayers:
  • adoration 
  • confession
  • thanksgiving
  • supplication
 My favorite way to teach them is to teach them as sentences. Small children can learn them in their simplicity. Adults can use them as a reminder of how straightforward and basic prayer can be. Say to God:
  • You're awesome. 
  • I'm sorry. 
  • Thank you. 
  • Please.
Expand as needed. Keep it short and sweet as you wish.
