How to Pray

Your guide to prayer in Catholicism, for every stage of the faith journey. Includes a vast range of books, prayers, & blogs.

The disciples of Jesus approached Him one day after He had been praying and said, “Lord, teach us to pray, as John taught his disciples.” (cf Luke 11:1-13)

For Christians, prayer is like having a conversation with a dear friend. It doesn’t have to be hard or complicated, and different people prefer different methods of prayer, just as different groups of friends will have conversations about different subjects.

At CTS, we want to help you on your faith journey, no matter which stage you’re at. Whether you’ve never prayed before and want to learn how, or if you’ve been praying regularly all your life and desire to deepen your prayer life, we have plenty of resources for you, both in the form of books and blogs.
