Prayer is a form of religious practice that seeks to activate a volitional connection to some greater power in the universe through deliberate practice. Prayer may be either individual or communal and take place in public or in private. It may involve the use of words or song. When language is used, prayer may take the form of a hymn, incantation, formal creedal statement, or a spontaneous utterance in the praying person. There are different forms of prayer such as petitionary prayer, prayers of supplication, thanksgiving, and worship/praise. Prayer may be directed towards a deity, spirit, deceased person, or lofty idea, for the purpose of worshiping, requesting guidance, requesting assistance, confessing sins or to express one's thoughts and emotions. Thus, people pray for many reasons such as personal benefit or for the sake of others.
It is with a joyous heart I hear the pleasant news that St. Mathew’s Church, Palakkal has come forward with their website. It is the right time for such endeavours since the world has become highly IT oriented. It makes easy for a member to go through the latest information and happenings of the parish even sitting on the other end of the planet. Now, the whole world is getting access to your parish or you are opening your church doors for all. I am sure that this will enhance your harmony and fraternity. I congratulate the parish priest, trustees and all others who have given efficient leadership for this dream to come true. May your parish grow more to the likeness of the Early Christian Community.
