There are three things that are important for our spiritual growth. These include: ‘The Eucharist’; ‘The Sacrament of Reconciliation’ and ‘Prayer’. I would like to focus on ‘Prayer’, since this is certainly essential and something that we should do daily. Prayer can be both verbal and silent, and we should always set time aside for silent prayer.
Two types of silent prayer include:


1. Ignatian Examen

To help you remember the five steps; use a 5-Rs mnemonic: Thibodeaux, Mark E. Reimagining the Ignatian Examen: Fresh Ways to Pray from Your Day (Loyola Press).

2. Lectio Divina http://www.beliefnet.com/faiths/catholic/2000/08/how-to-practice-lectio-divina.aspx
