As members of the Body of Christ, we all have different roles and parts to play. But, the one thing that all of us can and should do – is pray.
We all know the importance and power of prayer, but we still fail in making it an integral part of our lives. We make all kinds of excuses – I don’t have the time, I don’t feel anything, I don’t know what to say.
But, how often can we find time for literally anything else in our day. Yet, prayer is the one thing that we claim we don’t have time for.
Many times, we won’t feel anything. But, how much more love can we show God by praying when we don’t feel like it?
Finally, we must remind ourselves – we don’t need to reinvent the wheel. There is a time and place for spontaneous prayer, but there is power in praying the prayers that the Church has prayed for two thousand years.
Don’t overcomplicate it. Lean on the Our Father, the Hail Mary, the Glory Be, the Rosary, the Psalms, the Liturgy of the Hours, the Mass.
It can start as simply as beginning each day with the Our Father.
