Eight Ways to Pray During Adoration

by Steve Ray on February 8, 2020

For a lot of us prayer is difficult – mind goes blank, mind wanders, not sure quite what to do. When we sit in front of the Blessed Sacrament — OK, now what?

This is an excellent little diagram to give us direction and options. Next thing you know, time flies and you look forward to coming back into the Presence of the Lord and doing it again.

Love what you do Mr. Ray! I would love to begin reading your books. Do you have a website that I can refer to? GOD BLESS! Tom.

My parish has Benediction and Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament on the first Friday of each month. It’s a small parish and only a few attend. I wish more people understood the peace that can be found in sitting before Our Lord in silence.

The main prayer which would be appropriate would be the Liturgy of the Hours, If you do not have a paper (book) breviary, you can always print the appropriate Hour from the Internet in advance of your visit. Also, it is possible to say the Rosary multiple times, if needed, each time with a different set of mysteries.

But the LOTH is the most appropriate, since it is the prayer of the Church, real liturgy, which can be said by anyone.

Our Lady of Sorrows Catholic Church in Birmingham, Alabama has LIVE 24-hour Adoration. See their website or find it on youtube.com. It’s a great comfort to know I can adore our Lord any time of the day or night.

Maybe this is lumped in with meditate, but just sit in silence with the Lord. How can He talk with you if you are always talking to Him. Just sit in silence and let Him speak.
