Prayer is simply conversation with God. Like in any human relationship, time together and communicating are essential ingredients to building deeper relationships with our family and friends. Prayer is God's gift to us in that He is always present to listen to our needs and to speak to us in the stillness of our hearts. Sometimes it feels powerful and sometimes it feels dry, but with every moment of prayer God is quietly molding our hearts to be more like His.
One particularly powerful form of prayer is Adoration. In Adoration, the Blessed Sacrament is placed in a golden vessel called a monstrance. During Exposition of the Blessed Sacacrament (Adoration) we can look at Jesus and He looks at us. Click on the image for Adoration opportunities in our diocese. Please double check local bulletins as adoration times can change.
