“How to pray? This is a simple matter. I would say: Pray any way you like, so long as you do pray.” Pope John Paul II

St. Josemaria Escriva, whom John Paul II called “a master in the practice of prayer,” replied to somebody, “You don’t know how to pray? Put yourself in the presence of God, and as soon as you have said, “Lord, I don’t know how to pray!” you can be sure you’ve already begun.”

St. Teresa of Jesus says, ‘Prayer … is nothing more than an intimate and frequent dialogue of friendship with the one whom we know loves us.’
