“Prayer is the raising of one’s mind and heart to God or the requesting of good things from God.” – St John Damascene, CCC 2559)
The Catholic Church teaches us that we should pray not only directly to God, but also to those who are close to God, those who have the power to intercede upon our behalf. Thus, being a part of a faith community serves as a support system for us. Community strengthens and unites us in our faith. Being part of community prayer is another way for us to become closer to God through others.
