Short Prayers

An aspiration is a short prayer meant to be memorized and repeated throughout your days. God should be the center of our lives and continually kept in our thoughts and minds. These examples of short prayers can deepen not only our prayer life, but also our relationship with God through His Son Jesus Christ.

Short prayers can be spoken while you’re going about your day. In 1 Thessalonians 5:17, St. Paul tells us to ‘pray without ceasing.’ Keeping our focus on Jesus will lesson our worries and stress.
