The Transfiguration of Our Lord

Tomorrow (August 6) is the feast of the Transfiguration our Lord. In reading the mass readings for today, these verses particularly stand out:

Then from the cloud came a voice that said, “This is my chosen Son; listen to Him.”

Therefore, I am going to pray for the grace to be able to hear the voice of Jesus. I am praying for the grace to not let the many cares of daily life from getting in the way of listening to His voice and paying attention to Him. I don’t know about you, but I can easily get into the habit of letting the craziness of life take over me and I don’t take the time for prayer and spending time with God. How about you? Am I alone in this?

That’s why I need the grace to make time for prayer and reading His Word. In essence, am praying for a deepening of my relationship with the Lord.

I am also praying for this grace for each of you, as well. I pray that you have a deepening of your relationship with Jesus and that you grow ever closer to Him with each new day. May all our minds and hearts be transfigured unto Jesus.

How about you? What is your prayer for this beautiful feast?

Complimentary eBook for Busy Women Looking to Make Time for Prayer

A lot of women say they don’t have time for prayer. They say that they are spinning their heels running from one activity to another and barely have time to breathe let alone pray. I get that. We live in a fast-paced world and we are all pulled in many directions. We have many things vying for our attention and we often don’t know where to start first.

Here’s the thing, prayer is the most important thing that we can do each day. God doesn’t need our prayers, but we need to pray. Praying helps keep us grounded and centered. Prayer connects us to God and allows His grace to work through us. Without prayer, everything else we do loses its meaning.

A long time ago I was at a retreat and the priest guiding the retreat said to us (possibly quoting a saint), “You should pray at least one hour a day. If you are very busy and pulled in several directions than you should pray at least two hours a day!” He said this not to say that we should literally pray for one or two hours a day but to stress how important prayer is to our lives.

I certainly don’t have time to pray for one or two hours a day and I’m guessing neither do you. 🙂 However, if you think you don’t have time for prayer, it’s time to think again. With a little creativity and thought, you CAN find time for prayer. That’s why I wrote the eBook, The Busy Woman’s Guide for Making Time for Prayer.  I wrote it to prove to you that you can find time to pray if you really want to (even if it is only for 5 to 15 minutes a day) and to give you specific ways in which to do so.

And guess what? It’s f*r*e*e! I could charge for the eBook but I really want as many women as possible to read the eBook and hopefully put it into practice.
