Time for prayer

A lot of us are really missing the presence of our Lord right now in the Mass and in the Eucharist, but let me tell you, the scripture that comes to mind at a time like this is that after Jesus rose from the dead, he walked through locked doors. As we stay home, I think he’s walking through the doors of our home right now, but we have to be intentional about carving out prayer time every day. 

Right now, we’re going to tap into his divine presence and the strength that is required to be the person that you need to be for your family, for your friends, as a witness in the world right now. To do this, you need to make time for prayer, and there are so many beautiful Catholic devotionals that can help us do this. We have the rosary, we have the Liturgy of the Hours, which is a beautiful way to pray the Psalms throughout the day. It was a practice the Jews had that the early Christians picked up and the church still does today. Check out a Liturgy of the Hours app!

We have all sorts of beautiful meditations and prayers, and just sitting in his presence and praising him is a key way to stay tapped into the power that made the universe and the power to get through your day. Make time for it. You won’t regret it.
