• Do you struggle to make the time for prayer?
  • Does it happen that you do not feel like praying?
  • Do you find meaning in praying the rosary?
  • Do you want to meditate but you do not know how?
  • Do you consider a prayer as an intimate conversation with God?

We are thought to pray, we’re surrounded pray, we are surrounded by various prayer books, we have a few rosaries from holy places, the Bibles are lying next to our beds, and still something is missing … the awareness… that while praying we talk to God, the almighty, present, loving Creator.

“In prayer you become one with the source of our true light – Jesus Himself.”
St. Pope John Paul II

There is no doubt that St. Pope John Paul II was a “master of prayer”. He was constantly immersed in the reality of God’s presence. He was called – a contemplative who could kneel for hours on prayer. For him, contemplative prayer is a way for people to understand themselves and to solve their everyday problems. The Saint Pope taught how to pray, even when he could not speak anymore, he showed us how to pray through his suffering.

“Remember that you are never alone, Christ is with you on your journey every day of your lives! He has called you and chosen you to live in the freedom of the children of God. Turn to Him in prayer and in love. Ask Him to grant you the courage and strength to live in this freedom always. Walk with Him who is ‘the Way, the Truth and the Life.” 

St. Pope John Paul II

John Paul II often drew our attention to prayer, considering it the most important call for a Christian. He defined prayer as God’s initiative in us. According to him, we achieve the fullness of prayer not when we express ourselves most, but when the present God himself becomes most present in us. The Pope understood the world in which he lived, saw its tendencies and desires among which there was a vivid longing for God. That is why he pointed at prayer, the silent dwelling in the presence of God, the intimate dialog
with ‘I AM”.
