We look up to discipline: military discipline, good eating habits, or regular excercise. A spiritual life is another wonderful discipline to have. Think of Mother Theresa or any of the saints whose life and heroic virtues you might have heard about. But for real... who can live like that in this demanding XXIst Century? It's not easy to find time to pray, then commit to it every day, let alone even knowing how to pray. How are you supposed to talk to God? To some of us, it would seem like prayer is only a supernatural 911 you call when you get in trouble. But our heavenly Father loves His children and He knows best. He rewards our efforts.
In his very spontaneous yet profound personal style, Fr Peter gives us the pointers on how to get back on the right path of prayer, same as with anything worthwhile: go back to the basics. In order to learn Algebra, learn basic Math first. In order to run a marathon, run a mile first. In order to play guitar... you get the idea. Now in order to remember what the spiritual basics are, hit the play button on this video and watch.
This is talk two of two from a Lent retreat preached in Atlanta, Georgia to the Integer Group employees in 2010.
