Charismatic Prayer!

Charismatic Prayer!

You're loud and proud about your faith, and you are not afraid to show your feelings to anyone! Whether you're singing your heart out, praying in tongues, or laying hands on someone to pray over them, your prayer life is vocal and bold. The charismatic style of prayer is the way to go for you!

Lectio Divina!

Lectio Divina!

You can be a bit flighty, and you need order in order to keep your busy thoughts from wandering during prayer. You enjoy reading and writing, and you might be a bit of a chatterbox! So take all of that, grab a Bible (or just a Bible verse from the internet) and some paper to journal your thoughts, and start doing Lectio Divina! Read the verse, write what you think is going on in it, and repeat.

Eucharistic Adoration!

Eucharistic Adoration!

You're quiet, kind, and wise, and people look to you to ground them. Your life often seems overwhelming, and you need someone to ground you, too! You should go to Eucharist Adoration more often, and just be with Jesus. It's like a one-on-one date with the King of Kings! What's not to love?

Structured Prayer!

Structured Prayer!

You're quiet and contemplative, and more thoughtful than people give you credit for. You love order and you're a creature of habit, and that's why repetitive prayer is the way to go for you! Whether you're saying a rosary, a Divine Mercy chaplet, or a novena, you love the orderliness and calm that structured prayer gives.
