An excellent reflection on prayer

By The Dutchman at Catholic Dads.

I have only one addition: pray before, pray during, and pray after. Everything. If that sounds a lot like St. Paul's admonition to "pray constantly" (1 Thes. 5:17), that's because it pretty much is. It sounds impossible, but by constantly remembering the old Jesuit motto "ad majorem Dei gloriam" it does truly become easier every time you try.
