Day 346: Meditation and Vocal Prayer (2700-2708)

Prayer by Fr. Mike: “Father in Heaven, we give you praise and glory. Thank you for bringing us to this day. Thank you for bringing us to day 346, for bringing us to this place, where we can hear the teaching of your Church in such a brief way on what it is to express vocal prayer, what it is to have meditative prayer. And you invite us into this, Lord. You invite us into this expression of our love for you, of our pleading with you, your expression of praising and glorifying you through vocal prayer. And we ask that you help us to enter more deeply into meditative prayer, into that silent prayer, that quiet prayer in the depths of our hearts. Lord God, in this day, we ask you to help us. Make us pray-ers. Make us people who pray, people who talk to you and seek you at all times. And Lord, as we heard yesterday, we cannot pray at all times unless we pray at certain times. So we ask you, please help us to make the decision. Help us to make the choice to spend time just with you, to spend time just with you in prayer today. Bless this time. Help us to learn more about you and how we can talk to you. In Jesus’ name we pray. Amen”
