Creativity in Prayer

"Prior to the pandemic, it would be safe to assume that many of us had some regularity when it came to prayer. We recognize the importance of personal prayer time, especially as much of our efforts on a daily basis are focused on leading others to Christ. Your weekly schedule may have included attending Mass regularly, weekly devotions, reflective journal time, praise and worship, and spending time in a Blessed Sacrament chapel in the presence of Christ. Recently, these practices have become limited or just eliminated altogether. The Blessed Sacrament chapel where I used to sit each week has closed its doors since March. The statewide mandate issuing a ‘no singing’ order has taken away expressive times of praise and worship. The limited engagement of attending Mass in person has leveled the true summit of our faith. And, perhaps, even our daily prayer times operate more from a place of fear and worry rather than a place of praise and gratitude. On top of everything else, our minds have been busy working on the ‘how are we going to do this’ rather than ‘why do we do this.’"
