I've been trying to be more conscious in expressing appreciation instead of only praying when I want/need something but I'm not sure that I'm feeling anything...which is leading to doubt as often I feel that I'm just talking to myself.
I'd appreciate any suggestions which may help to make my prayer life more meaningful.
- Do you pray every day and is it always at a particular time of day?
- Do you adopt a particular posture for prayer?
- Do you use a "standard" prayer such as the Lord's Prayer or do you use your own words?
- Do you speak aloud or just in your own mind?
My husband is an avowed atheist. None of my family members or friends have any religious beliefs that I'm aware of so I feel quite isolated in this aspect of my life. I do attend Mass on a semi regular basis but I don't feel that there is anyone at church that I can discuss this with.
