What You Don't Know About Prayer
Let’s be honest. You probably think you’re doing fine in your prayer life. And perhaps you are. But is your prayer life actually deepening and growing? St. Bernard famously said, “He who does not advance, falls back.” What if there’s more to prayer than what you experience now? God wants all of us to pray like saints. What’s holding you back from reaching the heights of prayer that God is calling you to?
Don't Just Pray More, Pray Better. Start Now.
Prayer is essential to our spiritual life, yet it is one of the hardest things for us to do. If you’ve ever tried to maintain a consistent and meaningful prayer life, you know how difficult it can be. Prayer doesn't come easy. Almost everyone struggles with it in one way or another.
All the saints knew they had to work at their prayer life in order to pray better. That's because prayer is something that is taught and learned. How do we recognize and overcome obstacles that stunt our prayer life? How can we practice better prayer habits? In order to pray well as faithful Catholics, we must draw from how the Holy Spirit has taught the Church to pray over the centuries. This is exactly what we'll examine in School of Prayer, gleaning insight from both Eastern Catholic and Western Catholic traditions. Get practical instruction that will help you pray better—now and for the rest of your life.
