Lord’s Prayer: Padre nuestro

There are different ways to pray. It is possible to pray in silence, in a private act that takes place anywhere (a house, a transport, before going to sleep, etc.). In other cases, the prayer is performed out loud and according to the instructions of the religious leader.

The act of praying can involve certain movements or body postures. In Catholicism, it is customary for the prayer to begin with the sign of the cross and then for the person to put their palms together. If the person is inside a church, likely, the subject will also kneel before the altar or in front of some image.

Praying can consist of thinking or pronouncing certain ideas that are intended to be transmitted to God. The prayer can also consist of repeating an already established prayer, such as the “Padre nuestro”.

This is composed, among other things, of the “Padre nuestro”, “de varias Ave Marías”, “de la Gloria” and the pertinent mysteries, which correspond to different days of the week.
