"'Oremus': A Guide to Catholic Prayer"
"Say Your Prayers"
Do you find it easy to pray? Is prayer an integral part of your day? Do you hear God's voice in your daily life, and know how to respond accordingly?
For many of us, the answer to these questions is, "no." We all desire an intimate relationship with God. But since learning to "say our prayers" as children, many of us never moved beyond simple recitation to an authentic conversation with God.
"Not Just for Mystics"
In Scripture we read of profound interactions people have with God. We hear of Saints who seemed to have a direct line to Him their entire lives. Most of the time we feel like this is far beyond our reach. After all, we're not prophets and certainly not (yet) Saints!
For most of us, prayer becomes a source of frustration as we struggle to calm our minds and find even a few minutes to set aside to pray. In our busy lives, prayer is seen as a luxury, when in reality it is the foundation of a healthy spiritual life.
The good news is you can overcome your difficulties with prayer, and it is easier than you might think!
