The Inheritance of Prayer?

Some faiths have written prayers available to recite for specific occasions, while others pray off of the top of their heads. Some whisper prayers during a quiet moment of frustration while others scream them in times of desperation or hardship. Some use scriptures as guidance for prayer while still others use every avenue available. There are many ways to pray and not necessarily a “right way” to pray. The important thing to remember is that prayer is simply a method of communicating with God.

Continuing the exploration of Our Spiritual Heritage, Midday Joy with Unathi asked listeners one simple question; Who taught you to Pray? and the responses were overwhelming. It seems our grandmothers have been the custodians and teachers of prayer for many.
