A 30-day series to transform your prayer life.

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.

It is the most comprehensive and commendable source on prayer and praying I have ever seen. Very Stimulating.

— David

It was very well done. The combination of the written reflections with videos and audio rosary was perfect. The many quotes from the saints and from the catechisms were fantastic. Also the perspective of the Eastern lung of the church was refreshing.

— Father Jose

This course was life changing for me. I never realized how broad and deep the subject of prayer could be! The writers and presenters were very professional. Thank you Father Joseph, Gretchen, and Whitney. Not only did you help me to strengthen and broaden my Catholic faith, I learned a lot about the Eastern Church.

— Don

Wonderful! School of Prayer was more than I ever expected it to be. Every day was an experience that touched my soul.
