'The following has been written by a 5th year student and it's called 'Prayer in my life'
When I was a child my parents taught me how to pray. At first I learned the 'Our Father'. At that time I did not realise the great effect that this prayer would have on my life. I particularly remember my confirmation. Although it was a long time ago I know it was a turning point in my life. I realised that God was not a myth or a man in the sky but rather a very real energy in the world.
I didn't feel alone anymore. I pray best when I am being artistic in drama or through craft work. God speaks to me in the enjoyment I get from this creativity. I truly believe that I would not survive without God. God is the love and beauty that I find in my life. Sometimes I don't pray as much as I should and I feel empty inside. I feel sad that some people cannot find God. God is a feeling that can never be taken from us, a feeling called love. I pray because I need the warmth that God gives to me each day.
