Prayer is an important part of my spiritual practice. What does it mean for a UU to pray? Each UU is different of course. For me it means a time set aside to connect to God and to open myself to God’s presence. For UUs who don’t believe in God, prayer can be meditation and an honoring of the sacredness of each moment.
How is prayer different from meditation? One of my mentors, Rev Kate Landis, recently shared with me that she thinks of prayer as speaking and meditation as listening. I love this. I also think of prayer as seeking. I am seeking a connection to the Holy.
