Time to Pray: I can't find it!

 

Time to Pray:

for post on finding time to pray

Fr John Bartunek

Dan Burke

To be a saint, we have to pray.  So, why can't we find time to pray?  And, what does it mean when we can't find time to pray? What is one reason we can be uncomfortable in praying? Prayer is something that is, in fact, possible and is always necessary for our relationship with God, who loves us. In this short video (of under five minutes) from SpiritualDirection.com, Fr. John Bartunek and Dan Burke talk about how to find time to pray.  Father John assures us we can find time to pray.  He talks about the two things that we can adjust in our lives, without adding anything more to our “to do” list.  And, these two things, done during the day, will create an environment of prayer in our lives.
