“Teach us to Pray”, the guide for the Year of Prayer is now available

21 February 2024

To mark the Year of Prayer, the Dicastery for Evangelization has prepared a series of useful materials and aids which can be used by Christian communities and individuals in their preparations for the 2025 Jubilee.

A new guide "Teach us to Pray" is now available online and a digital version can be downloaded free from the website. The title is taken from the 11th chapter of the Gospel of Luke (Lk 11.1).

The booklet, inspired by the teachings of Pope Francis, is written as an invitation to intensify prayer, understood as a personal dialogue with God,  and to lead readers to reflect on their faith, and their commitment in today's world, in the various contexts in which they are called to live.

The aim is to offer reflections, ideas, and advice to help people to live their dialogue with the Lord more fully in their relationships with others. The guide is made up of sections dedicated to prayer in the parish community, and in the family, with other sections dedicated to young people, cloistered communities, catechesis, and spiritual retreats.
