I am frantically preparing for a silent retreat I am leading from 1-4 August. It is called Aspects of Prayer and I shall be looking at different ways to pray. I’ve known that I would be leading this retreat for some time now – for some months, in fact. But that hasnt helped me in being more organised so here I am at the last minute researching different types of prayer and preparing talks. However, there is an up side to all of this. My prayer life has improved dramatically over the past week. Why don’t I make time to do this more often?
