    Adoration, one on one time with God in Church. Some Catholic Churches have 24 hour Adoration, and some just have it the first Sunday of the month. But spending time one on one in a quiet setting talking to God is one way to pray powerfully.

    Cheryl, sounds like you’re talking about a novena. There are variations, but a novena is typically saying the Rosary or some other prayer for nine days in a row, seeking guidance or grace relating to something specific.

    Hi Cheryl, I’ll do a little research on the radio show comment. Here are a few links to Busted Halo articles about prayer that you might enjoy. One on conversational prayer. One about meditation. And a piece about one woman’s experience of imaginative prayer. There are several other pieces from Busted Halo writers on prayer, so I encourage you to search the website to find more.

    I’m a new catholic and pray the rosary (goal is daily). I am curious in learning about the kind of prayer that a caller from yesterday’s show mentioned. I thought she said ‘ovena’, but can’t find anything on the net about that or any other spelling of the sound. It was the woman trying to decide what God had planned for her relationships. Thanks if you are able to clear this up for me…Cheryl Hall
