Going Deeper in Prayer

The Lord meets us where we are and wants to hear our hopes, fears, desires and struggles. It is through these realities that He is able to lead our hearts. Practically, going deeper can look like this:

  • Setting time aside daily for silent prayer
  • Creating spaces for silence and welcome, even when you’re not “praying”- to be open to the voice of Jesus (i.e. limiting distractions; going unplugged during your run or commute)
  • Receiving the graces of Confession more frequently
  • Spending time in Adoration
  • Reading the scriptures, beginning with the Gospels
  • Making time for daily Mass when possible
