Prayer works best when we pray in community. Sages and believers have known this for ages, which is why we gather in churches, synagogues, temples, monasteries, and even each other's living rooms to support each other in the spiritual life.

We can also gather here at Beliefnet, share our stories and lessons learned, and help each other develop lifestyles of prayer. Click through our list of 10 ways to pray on Beliefnet, and be encouraged in your prayer life today.
