I have a bit of a prayer routine; (LOH) morning prayer, angelus, (LOH) evening prayer and chaplet of Divine Mercy. I am trying to get 30 minutes of mental prayer in; I haven't found the best time for me yet.

Just asi need oxygen so I need prayer as away to unite with God. I must know him and love him in faith so that I can seek Him in prayer. I require commitment and faithfulness to be successful. Jesus did it so I'm to do the same. Awareness is necessity for methoughout the day from dawn to dust for a fruitful examination of conscience which I fail.

I need to pray always. I am very interested in 1Thessalonians, 5-17 where Paul says, "Pray without ceasing." So maybe that means, in addition to setting aside time for oral prayer, meditation, and contemplation, to use something like the Morning Offering to dedicate each day and all our thinking and acting to the greater glory of God. I see we'll address this in a future lesson, but it reminds me of the Russian story, The Way of the Pilgrim and the pilgrim's quest for Paul's meaning. Whatever, prayer is my effort to find meaning and love in my life and to be thankful for all God has given me.

The drama of prayer is played in God's economy of salvation for us and the whole world. From God's first call in the garden He "tirelessly calls each person to that mysterious encounter known as prayer." (CCC2567) When god calls Abraham, Moses, Elijah, they all answer in faith and "take the desert road that leads to the place where God reveals Himself to His people." (CC2780) The Psalmists call the people to sing to Him in the temple. Through the prophets and the psalmists the prayer drama unfolds in salvation history, reaching its full dramatic revelation in the Word made flesh: Jesus Christ.

Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your petitions be made known to God. ( Philippians 4;6)
I have learned I can't really have my day plan for prayer. I start out with a plan but things change so I get up earlier or stay up later. Still getting ,my prayer in and short prayers throughout the day to stay in constant union with God.Finding moments of quiet time to spend with our Lord. Sometimes I say I am going to take a nap, but i am praying. Resting my body while our Lord is rest for my soul.

How can we not pray when the grace of God can help us to persevere? This lesson helped me to consider a schedule of prayer through out the day, to build a stronger interior life. In the past, I wrote in a journal as a form of prayer. Returning to this habit, I think, can help me improve my prayer life as well as continuing to read and meditate on "Magnificat" passages.

Prayer was used in my family at bedtime and we kneeled together before we went to sleep. More or less. Mom was the role model.
During my nursing education I had access to mass daily. I tried to attend daily, compulsive???scrupulosity?
Two years ago I assisted with a Confirmation Class and we used Matthew Kelly/content....I was "smitten" by the Holy Spirit. 10 miniutes daily using Matthew's plan and adding more meditation.
