Praying with our senses reminds us that prayer is not just something we do with our mind. Our senses provide us with the images and experiences that we put into words or thoughts. We can bring all that we are into our relationship with God: indeed God who created us as we are, can use every means to reach us.

One way of using our senses is to help us prepare for a time of pray. Take a few minutes to be still and slowly bring your attention to what you can see around you, what you can hear, what you can small, anything you can taste, what you can feel on different parts of your skin. These sensations may lead you straight into prayer, or they may give you a sense of present focus for your planned prayers.

God bless
