Actually, no I do not use a specific prayer. I let God lead me through the Holy Spirit but pray according to the Mysteries of that day. So if it is a day for the Mysteries of Light, I will pray a prayer focusing on those events, thank God for those specific events. By doing this, I can be consistent in my praying and also remember the life of Christ from birth to resurrection to His one day returning. :) I hope this has helped you...if not, just ask :)

Out of curiosity, do you use a specific prayer to Jesus? Being protestant, the Hail Mary doesn't really work for me but I haven't found an alternative that I like. Historically, people either used just the Our Father prayer or, even earlier, the psalms (though I don't have the psalms memorized, so that doesn't work so well for me either). So I'm still exploring options.

Dear ZANNACHAN, regarding Rosaries, though I attend a Pentecostal church, I do use rosaries as a way of remaining focused on my prayer sometimes. The only thing I did was change the prayers to Mary to ones to Jesus. Rosaries are a wonderful way of recalling all that Jesus did from the glorious to the suffering. I'm ever so glad you find them helpful. I do as well, just holding it with the cross in hand.

Well, some of those ways aren't limited to Christians *grin* but they are all very good advice.

Anyone have any experience with saying rosaries? It's a Christian form of meditation and one that fascinates me--I find the beads soothing--but I wasn't raised in a denomination that really uses them so it's not a form of prayer/meditation I'm familiar with.

36 Christian Ways to Reduce Stress
1. Pray
2. Go to bed on time.
3. Get up on time so you can start the day unrushed.
4. Say "No," to projects⁄activities that won't fit into your time schedule, or that will compromise your mental health.
5. Delegate tasks to capable others.
6. Simplify and un-clutter your life.
7. Less is more. (Although one is often not enough, two are often too many.)
8. Allow extra time to do things and to get to places.
9. Pace yourself. Spread out big changes and difficult projects over time; don't lump the hard things all together.
10. Take one day at a time.
11. Separate worries from concerns. If a situation is a concern, find out what God would have you to do and let go of the anxiety. If you can't do anything about a situation, forget it.
12. Live within your budget.
13. Have backups; an extra car key in your wallet, an extra house key buried in the garden, extra stamps, etc.
14. K. M. S. (Keep Mouth Shut.) This single piece of advice can prevent an enormous amount of trouble.
15. Do something for the Kid in You everyday.
16. Carry a Bible with you to read while waiting in line.
17. Get enough exercise.
18. Eat right.
19. Get organized so everything has its place.
20. Listen to a tape while driving that can help improve your quality of life.
21. Write thoughts and inspirations down.
22. Everyday, find time to be alone.
23. Having problems? Talk to God on the spot. Try to nip small problems in the bud. Don't wait until its time to go to bed to try and pray.
24. Make friends with Godly people.
25. Keep a folder of favorite scriptures on hand.
26. Remember that the shortest bridge between despair and hope is often a good "Thank you Jesus!"
27. Laugh.
28. Laugh some more!
29. Take your work seriously, but yourself not at all.
30. Develop a forgiving attitude (most people are doing the best they can).
31. Be kind to unkind people (they probably need it the most).
32. Sit on your ego.
33. Talk less; listen more.
34. Slow down.
35. Remind yourself that you are not the general manager of the universe.
36. Every night before bed, think of one thing you're grateful for that you've never been grateful for before.
