5 Tips to Pray MORE, From the Heart, When You’re TOO Busy

St. Francis de Sales once said, “Every one of us needs half an hour of prayer a day, except when we are busy – then we need an hour.”

I always feel at least a little bit better after I pray, especially when I prayer-journal and I’m praying from the heart. So why don’t I pray always, pray unceasingly, or at least pray for a consistent time each and every day? I have good intentions, but the day runs away from me.

The Saints Can Prompt Us to Pray

The Communion of Saints offers us mentors in our Catholic Faith, patrons of almost anything you can think of for intercession, and models of persistent pursuit of holiness, wholeheartedly seeking virtue, prayer, and union with God. While many of the Saints gave us specific teaching about prayer, we can also look to their particular patronage as a special prompt to pray as they did or to pray for their intercession.

Library of How Saints Pray

I’ve been creating my own Masterclass-for-me, researching what the Saints teach us about prayer. I’ve discovered some AWESOME books…some are probably familiar if you’ve ever jumped into Catholic spiritual reading, but some are a little obscure, written by holy men and women, not yet declared saints…a couple of them are still walking around in our time!
