A great way to start praying is by finding someone who can pray.

When I started praying, I found it difficult to pray on my own. I didn’t know how to start, what to say, or how long to pray for. After a little bit of research, I found that having a prayer partner can be a great way to start praying.

A prayer partner is someone with whom you can share your prayer requests and thoughts. They can help you pray for others, offer encouragement, and hold you accountable. Prayer partners don’t have to be from the same church or even the same religious denomination.

Finding a prayer partner doesn’t have to be difficult. You can ask friends and family if they want to pray with you or post a request. At Operando we have a dedicated prayer wall.
