Today’s Question by the reader : Ema

Author: Paulo Coelho

How exactly do you pray?

I pray three times a day – when I wake up, then at 18h and when I go to bed. These are conventional prayers that I do every single day – since I think that it is very important to be rigorous in the spiritual quest.

Having said this, I see myself praying many times throughout the day – sometimes because of an unexpected joy, sometimes because of my fears, sometimes because of a wish I need to make. More importantly, I pray through my work that I perform with great love, and through my life. To live intensively and with joy is the best way of praying.
