Prayer 101

What is Prayer?
 The word comes from the Latin precari, "to beg." The broadest definition is an engagement with the divine. The three common types of prayer are:
  1. Intercessory prayer: Asking God or a higher power to intervene on someone's behalf.
  2. Supplication: Asking for a specific outcome.
  3. Nondirected prayer: Asking for the person's highest good or "Thy will be done."
