Prayer is not just a private and intimate dialogue between a person and God, but rather an opportunity for Christians to bring the needs of others before the Lord, Pope Francis said.
“There is no room for individualism in the dialogue with God,” the pope said Feb. 13 during his weekly general audience. “There is no display of one’s own problems as if we were the only ones in the world who suffer. There is no prayer raised to God that is not the prayer of a community of brothers and sisters.” Arriving at the Paul VI audience hall, the pope was welcomed by the sound of a children’s choir singing a song based on his own teaching of the three words that are important for family life: “please,” “thank you” and “sorry.”
