How appropriate that my letter for P happens to be for prayer...and is scheduled to fall on Good Friday.
I will be posting two letters on Thursday, April 17 because April 18 is Good Friday. As a practicing Catholic, I try not to do much on Good Friday. It's a day of prayer and reflection, and one of the few days that Catholics are asked to fast (I don't fast because I'm hypoglycemic and get sick if I do).
After my second ankle surgery, I asked if I could see a priest while I was in the hospital. I wish I remembered his name, because he was a truly nice man to speak with. He offered me confession and afterward I was given communion. It was a little spiritual boost for me...something that my soul was thirsty for.
Prayer has gotten me through a lot of tough times in my life and this past year has been no different. There are times that I need to calm myself...either because I have anxiety, or depression, or pain. At these times I take out my rosary beads and pray. It's a form of meditation for me.
Do you have certain prayers or meditation techniques that help you get through hard times?
