Typed/written prayers?


Not sure this is the right place for this.

When we write or type a prayer is that praying? For instance, if I type ‘God bless’ or ‘I pray that . . .’, is the act of thinking it to type it praying? Also, I write prayers in my journal - is the act of thinking them to write them praying? Or do written/typed prayers need to be prayed with more attention?


I’m a writing person. I can express myself better through writing than speaking. I write my prayers. And I sort of think of it as writing a letter to God. He can read it, and He answers my prayers. As long as your mind is on Him, it’s fine!
