The Power of Prayer
“Be yourself, be still and be nothing,” says Fr. Michael McCullagh CM, Spiritual Director in Maynooth College. He talks here to Miriam Gormally about prayer and how it informs his daily life. They look at different types of prayer and explore the difference between prayer, mindfulness and making petitions to God. Fr Michael says that while sometimes it may seem that our prayers are not directly answered, there is nothing accidental in the spiritual world. He began first though by explaining his own spiritual practice.
