Jared Brock spent a year and traveled 37,000 miles around the globe in a prayer pilgrimage. From meeting the pope to walking on coals, Brock revived his prayer life. Here are the seven different ways he learned to pray from this experience.

1. Shalom

Praying with this one word of peace is considered to be one of the most powerful prayers to say in just a single word. Many people may pray for hours each week this way.

2. Bible

Have an open bible se aside and pray its verses from it accordingly for your specific situation.

3. Silence

Practice stillness in order to commune with Jesus. Saying nothing at all can be as powerful as the words you pray.

4. Move

Use motion and breathing to attach a physicality to spirituality. This is one way monks gather together to pray in rhythm.

5. Light

You do not just need words to pray. Picture the individual you want to pray for in the light of God’s grace. This is one way Quakers would pray. Hold the image there and ask God to do what only He can do.

6. Prevail

Have a list with the names of everyone you wish to be near God. Say their names out loud each day to pray for them to draw near to Christ. One man prayed for another man for 63 years and 8 months.

7. Sing

Sometimes words can not capture how horrific a situation may be. If you feel broken, pray with the words of a song to express your thoughts to God.

No matter which way you find words best for you in prayer, just remember that the Lord will hear your prayer when you seek His grace.
