The Power of the Cross: First Week of Lent, Tuesday - The Cross of Christ Teaches Us How to Pray

Ask — How can my prayer better reflect what is going on in my life at the present moment?

Seek — Try praying for ah extended period of time in the orans position. Ask our Lord to teach you this lesson from the cross, so that your prayer might always be heartfelt.

Knock — Meditate on Hebrews 5:7. How might your prayer become more like the prayer of Christ?

Transform Your Life — Foster a sense of God's presence before you begin any prayer. Speak to God from your heart, then listen. God is the most important being with whom you will ever speak.

It's an animated GIF from someone's signature on the Catholic Answers Forum web site. I agree: it is quite nifty.
