The Power of Sacred Space in Prayer

 

In this video, I reveal one of the secrets of the saints regarding how we can better engage in prayer. The idea of the sacred is lost in our time but that doesn’t have to hold us back in restoring this powerful reality in our own homes. When we do this we will find that just as with beautiful architecture, we can speak truth to our bodies and thus be drawn more powerfully into prayer, especially when we struggle.

A Note from Dan Burke:

Dear Friends, was this video a blessing to you? Do know others who might be blessed by it? Did you follow the link at the end of the video to the other resources we have prepared for you and those who also desire to know the life and peace that only God can give? Have we helped to encourage you to dig deeper in your faith? Please help us by sharing these videos on Facebook, through email, or whatever way that works best for you. Join with us in our desire to reignite the fires of prayer in the Church and bring about the renewal we so desperately desire to see from the Lord.

Yours in Christ,

    Next Tuesday, I will be teaching three classes of children at a Catholic school on how to pray and how to set up a sacred space as a reminder for them to pray when they see their sacred space in the morning and before they go to bed. This is through the Rosary Apostolate and I’m so glad to see they have chosen this particular teaching this month. What a blessing to be able to teach children how to pray and I love to do it!

      That sounds wonderful, Jeanette. May the Lord provide you with attentive and willing students!
