Hey there my friends!
Today's podcast episode was born out of a little project I have been working hard on behind the scenes. For the past few weeks I have been reading everything I can get my hands on about prayer so that I can help you (and me) really understand what prayer is and how to grow in holiness through prayer.

But, while doing this study on the topic of prayer I was struck again and again by the IMPORTANCE OF NOW.
Now, the importance of now, or living in the moment or mindfulness, or whatever you want to call it, is a pretty hot topic in the world of popular psychology. We often are so busy are distracted that we completely miss the beautiful life we are living. Or, we are so worried about the future or stuck in the past that we miss the moment we have.
And while all of these things are good and true, there is an even more important reasons to invest in this moment, right now.
GOD IS IN THE NOW.
Yes, God did wonderful things in the past and He will be a part of our future, but the only way that we can really get to know God, and thus allow Him to know and search us, is to engage with Him RIGHT NOW.
But, how do we slow ourselves down and truly enter into God's presence right now in this moment? Here are 3 simple ideas:
Theses are just ideas to get you started, and I really hope they are helpful!
A few of the books I mentioned in this episode are:
I hope that this little discussion of NOW opens up as many doors in prayer as it has for me!
