To Our Readers

Prayer happens all the time. And sometimes we don't even realize we've prayed. Maybe, for example, you helped someone today. Or even just wanted to help someone. Maybe you helped sort out a disagreement at work. Or maybe you made a friendly phone call to someone who's been sick. Or maybe you managed to smile and say, "Oh, well!" when a rude driver cut in front of you.

The fact is, if you've been helpful or caring or patient or courageous, you have prayed today. You've brought God into your life, and into the lives of others. And you can expect good results from your efforts—from your prayers.

There are so many ways of praying—unlimited ways. And that's what our cover story "How do you pray?" is about. The Sentinel asked ten readers to comment on how they pray. Their answers are sometimes deeply reverent, sometimes surprising, sometimes whimsical—but in each case, profound. Look for part two of their responses next week.
