28. What is Prayer


Praying for Peace, USA - 1962


What is prayer?
Prayer is the lifting up of our minds and hearts to God to adore Him, to thank Him for His benefits, to ask His forgiveness, and to beg of Him all the graces we need whether for soul or body. 

What means "the lifting up of our minds and hearts to God?"
This  means that we fix our thoughts on God and direct our wills towards Him.  

Advanced Catechism of Catholic Faith, 1922
