I talk a lot about Mental Prayer, but personally I get bogged down and often it feels like a chore. A reader named Alex wrote me about when “prayer feels like a chore.” I can relate. Trust me.
In today’s podcast, I talk about my own struggles and give three suggestions to overcome the idea that prayer is a chore – something to merely check off the list.
Also, due to the overwhelming response – the old intro music is back!
I also talk about Saint Alexander and the death of the heretic Arius who died on the toilet (as depicted in the image below). You won’t want to miss that story. It’s in this podcast’s “Saint of the Week” feature.
