The only secret to having a regular prayer time is practice, with practice it becomes habit and in becoming habit, it becomes second nature.
It really is all about forming a good habit of speaking and listening to God regularly, all day when the habit is well formed. That habit only starts with practicing the first stumblings and growing in them, persevering through the times you are distracted or dry in spirit.
It is repetition , practice and habit, through this there is growth in spirit , lessons learnt in daily life and a slowly developing relationship with Divinity. That relationship only is complete and perfect once we die. Here in this life we are given every opportunity to develop a relationship with God, to PRACTICE, to sometimes fail and learn in failing (the man who never made a mistake, never made anything), the strive forward in holiness which is achieveable for every human being and holiness of which, does not rely on being perfect.
Holiness cannot be achieved without converse (prayer) with the Almighty. The pivot of any Catholic is prayer, the axis of faith is prayer, the greatest love you can show any human being is to pray for them…in prayer we are united in Christ, life is prayer, Holy Mass and the Eucharist is the greatest prayer of the Church.
The secret…repetition and practice, to grow in love and to grow more Christ-like.
God Bless you
Hi Springbreeze,Im in agreement with your secrets What I do is devote 2 hours in the mourning and go to church and offer my prayers and readings. You do this for 14 straight days and you will become prayer trained.It takes repetition,and sacrafice but you will reap the rewards.The closer you draw to the Lord the closer He will draw to you. God Bless.
