‘Time for God’ will enliven your Year of Prayer (Video)

Caroline Fischer - published on 02/08/24

What does it mean to pray contemplatively? If, like me, you have always found praying 'from the heart' difficult, you will want to watch the video below.

I don’t know about you, but I have always felt contemplative prayer to be difficult. Praying “from the heart,” as Pope Frances has encouraged us to, sounds simple enough, but… How do I even begin? Is it just a matter of letting my feelings express themselves to God? That sometimes seems to work, but it is hard to maintain a prayer life that is just based on my feelings.

Fortunately, a good friend of Aleteia has recommended a wonderful book that I have found extremely helpful. Time for God by Jacques Philippe is the perfect book to get your prayer life jump-started as we enter the Year of Prayer.

Watch the video above to learn more. And feel free to share your own prayer tips in the comments below.
