Pray40Days is a 40-day prayer experience led by Fr. Michael J. Denk. If you are visiting for the first time, scroll down to the first post and read the introduction.

Day 1 Meditation The Lord’s Prayer Guided Meditation


Find a quiet room, settle into a spot that will be comfortable, close your eyes, and place your body in a relaxed position, usually without crossed arms or legs. Allow your imagination, fueled by your senses, to enter into the story. At the end of the meditation, do not rush to open your eyes. Let your body tell you when you are ready. Refer to “types of prayer” for further information about guided meditation.
