JUST 23 MORE PRAYING DAYS ‘TIL CHRIST’S BIRTH!
Next time your kid starts ooohhing and aaahhing about the guy leaping off a bridge with a parachute or jumping over ten sixteen wheelers on a dirt bike, you can chime in with your own examples of Xtreme Prayer!!! Read on.
Back in the day – the Gospel day – Jesus gave us some examples of Xtreme Prayer:
Remember the parable of the widow and the unrighteous judge? The widow bothered the judge constantly seeking justice and finally he found in her favor just to get rid of her (LK 18:1-8). Remember the father who brought his son to the apostles to have an unclean spirit cast out, but they were unable to do so? Jesus explained: “This kind cannot be driven out by anything but prayer and fasting” (Mk 9:16-29). We are also told that Jesus often spent “all night” praying (for example Lk 6:12). That was Xtreme Prayer then.
Here are some examples of Xtreme Prayer now:
Maintain your daily prayer regime during the most distracted season of them all!!!
Praying at the Mall – no seriously, PRAYING AT THE MALL!!!!!!!
Sit alone in a room and sincerely sing five or more (religious) Christmas carols.
Spend MORE than one hour in prayer.
Go to Church twice on the same day!!
Pray two or more Novenas at the same time.
Pray two or more litanies on the same day.
Pray MORE than five decades of the rosary on the same day.
You get the idea. You don’t need an expensive helmet for any of these (except maybe the Mall suggestion). Isn’t it amazing how free and accessible God is, anytime, anywhere, you choose the words…
