Pray as you can...
I have always believed that one must pray as one can, not as one can't. Here is a quote from Mother Stuart that may be helpful for reflection today:
"Contrition always, hope always, prayer as you can, in the way that is easiest at the moment. Be very flexible, don't want to have it this way or that way, but tend to what is simple and quiet, and persevere in hard times. One moment of realization is worth days and weeks of waiting."
Prayer is simple if we just realize that it is the expression of our own personal relationship with God - Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. It is usually easier to just talk to Jesus, but I hope you have a deep relationship with each person in the Blessed Trinity.
