Reflections on Prayer as Relationship

This week we welcome our incoming first-year law students, who started their orientation week on Monday. Today, I offered a Mid-Day Reflection for them on the subject of Prayer as Relationship.

In my talk, I shared some thought on the four dynamics of relational prayer described by Sr. Maureen Conroy in her book Experiencing God’s Tremendous Love. The four are: looking, sharing, listening and responding. Following the talk, I led the students on a guided meditation aimed at giving them an experience of relational prayer.

You can access a recording of my talk here or stream it from the icon below. The podcast, which does not include the guided meditation or the subsequent discussion, runs for 22:44.
