Description

No matter what stage of the game you’re in, today’s schedules are b-u-s-y. Classes or work, coffee meetups, pickup pickleball games, time with family—you name it. The calendar tends to keep the social commitments and professional pressures high.

Beginning where you are (a few minutes for intentional prayer or an entire hour spent in Adoration), Anastos’s thirty Holy Hour exercises will help you easily engage with Jesus in prayer, building your personal relationship with God. You’ll also encounter

  • personal examples of how Adoration made a difference in Fr. Anastos’s own prayer life,
  • suggestions about how to incorporate lectio divina in your prayer, and
  • imaginative prayer and spiritual journaling you can tap into before the Blessed Sacrament.
