Liturgical Prayer: Sample the Prayer

Liturgical prayer is ritual verbal praise, confession, thanksgiving, and/or petition that we offer to God, often in the company of other pray-ers.

If repeating this sort of prayer on your own seems laborious, consider visiting a liturgical church to experience the prayer. You might attend an Episcopal, Lutheran, or Catholic church some Sunday morning. Perhaps you could visit such a church while away from your regular practice, on vacation or a business trip. Episcopal churches may offer an early mass in addition to the traditional eleven o’clock service, and Catholic churches often hold a family mass on Saturday afternoons.
