prayer

Mar 7, 2018

Prayer is much easier than most of us think since prayer is our default setting, the most natural way of being in 24/7 relationship with Jesus Christ.

I hope you find this brief video clip a helpful encouragement for your prayer.

  1. For a second day in a row the word ‘desire’ seems to be the key. The desire to forgive and now the desire to pray. I hope to share this video today with an elderly lady who is really struggling with prayer in her reality. Thank you Fr John

  2. For many of us who have studied similar books on prayer, it’s been like sitting on dry land, reading books on how to swim. When we get in the water, swimming happens because the water supports us. So does chatting with God become easy when we know God’s loving presence holds us in being.

  10. If prayer is simply ‘desire’ I should be so heavenly minded as to be of no earthly use. Alas! Teresa of Avila said ‘He just looks at me and I look at Him’ will try and keep focused! Thanks John for so much for real down to earth usable inspiration.
