Are you too busy to pray?
In the morning, when you rise, you should bend your knees before God to adore Him, make the Sign of the Cross, and ask Him for His blessings for the entire day. This can be accomplished in the same amount of time it takes to say the Lord’s Prayer – “Our Father”.
In the evening, just before or after the meal, you can easily find the time to say a few prayers and place yourself before the Lord.
At night, before retiring, do a simple examination of conscience of what you have done during the day, and then, as you go to bed, get down on your knees and ask God’s pardon for the wrongs you have committed, and pray to Him asking Him to watch over you and give you His blessings. For this you may recite a short rosary (one or two decades of the Rosary would suffice).
Many of us wish to pray but we may find ourselves searching for words. The psalms are ready-made tools giving us the words with which to pray. There are 150 psalms in the Bible and these are prayers. Choose one or two psalms that speak to your heart. Just recite these psalms and feel your spirit energized. The psalms will lead you into the spirit of prayer. Praying the psalms is the entry into praying scripture.
“… everything you ask for in prayer, you will receive,” (Mt 21: 22)
