Mastering Prayer

Mastering Prayer

What difficult times we are experiencing. Every one of us. These are times that really test us and it has impacted our prayer life. Many of us have been banned from attending church because of governmental closures, the action of Bishops, or local priests. So what do we do when it comes to having an active prayer life? How do we survive this period of darkness? Add to this the collective worry about what may be coming down the line with woke politics, with fear about a reset of our world politics, and the threat of nuclear war that looms over all of us around the world. What do we do? This is the time that we need to go deep into prayer. One of the prayers that I find the most valuable is the Jesus Prayer.
