Prayer and asking

Have you ever whispered a prayer, wondering if it was too insignificant to be heard? Fr David Hore, a Redemptorist priest, returns to share his profound insights on why every plea to the divine matters. He unpacks the essence of prayer as an honest exchange with God, free from the constraints of triviality. Fr David guides us through the concept that all requests, big or small, are cherished by God, reminding us that the act of asking is itself an act of faith in divine providence.

As we draw nearer to Easter, David’s wisdom resonates with the promise of transformation, turning our personal ‘Good Fridays’ into ‘Easter Sundays’. He encourages us to view prayer not as a last-ditch effort but as a natural part of our life’s journey, filled with its myriad joys and challenges. This episode isn’t just about redefining our spiritual dialogue, it’s about recognising our dependence on God our creator and finding hope in the knowledge that we are heard, known by name, and eternally cared for.

Join us for a conversation that promises to uplift and deepen your understanding of how prayer can be a powerful force in your life.
