What is Prayer?
The definition of prayer is attend to the sacred.
We each have our own beliefs, ideas, and notions of what the sacred is. This may include beliefs in deities or a single deity, energies or powers in nature or around us, or something larger than ourselves that we may not be able to explain or express.
When we attend to whatever we consider sacred, that is what prayer is to us. It may include repeated words or actions, spontaneous words and actions, sitting in silence to commune or enable the presence of the sacred, or something else where we acknowledge that which is in some way greater than us and beyond our human abilities.
A Third Chair?
Spiritual Direction is sometimes symbolized by a third, or empty, chair. The space is available for whomever or whatever a seeker brings with them into the spiritual direction relationship.
