This article discusses the results of the inquiry of Janssen et al. After generalizing the results to a wider geographical scale, first the form of prayer is discussed. This can range from fixed formulas to spontanious prayer, to silence before God. Secondly the direction and effect of prayer is discussed. Prayer cannot be seen seperately from love of neighbour and engagement in society. This gives prayer a communal and communicative character in which God speaks through others. Prayer can also be understood in a mystic sense as 'becoming nothing'. In religious education both forms can be combined by practising communal prayer which is aimed at instructing pupils in methods of silence.
