About Oremus: (Latin: "Let us pray")

Do you find it easy to pray? Is prayer an integral part of your day? Do you hear God’s voice in your daily life, and know how to respond accordingly? For many of us, the answer to these questions is, “no.”

We all desire an intimate relationship with God. But, since learning to “say our prayers” as children, we never moved beyond rote recitation to an authentic conversation with God. Prayer becomes a source of frustration as we struggle to calm our minds and find even a few minutes to set aside to pray.

In our busy lives prayer is seen as a luxury, when in reality it is at the foundation of a healthy spiritual life.

In Scripture we read of profound interactions people have with God. We hear of Saints who seemed to have a direct line to Him their entire lives. But most of the time we feel like this is far beyond our reach. After all, we’re not prophets, and certainly not (yet) Saints!

The good news is you can overcome your difficulties with prayer, and it is easier than you might think.
