Dare to Pray
One of the most popular YouTube videos
of all time is The Evolution of Dance. In case you aren’t one of the
180 million plus people to watch this video, I’ll give you a brief
synopsis (or you can watch it on the right). Judson Laippley who is an
inspirational comedian is filmed doing several iconic dances of the 20th century. Throughout the performance, the viewer is able to see how far dance has come along in just sixty or seventy years.
One of the most fundamental things that Christians are taught is how to pray. Most Catholics learn the Hail Mary and Our Father from a very young age. But, they fail to mature and evolve their prayer as they grow older. It’s as if they are stuck on 21st century dance floor of prayer looking like John Travolta. How do we go beyond just memorizing words to having a prayer life that is real, intimate, and life-changing?
In Dare to Pray, the reader is given brief articles on why prayer is important and how we are to pray. In addition, a 30 day meditation through the Gospel of Luke is provided along with answers to common problems in prayer and recommended prayer resources.
