My Prayer Life Needs Help or Maybe…Simplified!

Tips for Praying

Tips for Praying

I am always looking for great tips for praying and improving my prayer life, but I find myself sometimes becoming overwhelmed by all the “shoulds” I should be doing, so when I glimpsed Father Mike Schmitz’s “Tips for Praying” on Facebook, I was quick to hit the play button.

Ascension Press is a great Catholic resource, and I absolutely love the video below on prayer.   Father Mike simplifies it by encouraging us to think about approaching prayer in these terms:   When, Where, What and Why (sounds like a journalism class).  I especially like his advice on picking one “What” for a season, perhaps a rosary and another favorite prayer is the Divine Mercy Chaplet.

I think the most important thing Father Mike reminds us is that “The whole battle is just showin’ up and being there.”   Thanks to Father Mike for great advice!   His bonus round–brings a smile to my face every time!  😀
