Default Apostles' creed as a prayer

Hi, i sometimes pray the Apostles creed as a prayer on its own. Wondered if anyone else did this here, and if was a recognised practice? At anglican services said at evensong. But read somewhere that used as a prayer in middle ages, and of course in the rosary. Thanks in advance

If you are lifting up your heart and mind to God, you are praying.

Default Re: Apostles' creed as a prayer

Yes, sometimes I do. The sign of the cross can also be a prayer, and it is one of the shortest creeds - when you sign yourself, you are saying "I believe in God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit".

I use it alone as a prayer, too. When I say it I am reaffirming my baptismal promises and expressing confidence and trust in Our Lord.

Of course it is a prayer! And you are doing just as grasscutter says.
