"But when you pray, go into your room, close the door and pray to your Father, who is unseen. Then your Father, who sees what is done in secret, will reward you."
Many times within his life Jesus taught about the importance of prayer. Look, for example, at what Jesus teaches about prayer during the Sermon of the Mount. Jesus stresses the need for personal, quiet, and secret prayer in a person’s life. That being said, Jesus also stresses later on the importance of prayer in a group (Mt 18:20). Through this amazing gift of prayer we can grow our relationship with God and be able to listen to God more closely in our life.
My name is Michael. Many people call me Mike, and that’s what I go by around here. This is my little corner of the internet that I like to call, “ Pray To God Today.” I have always been interested with the idea of prayer: that we can talk to God and that he will respond. From that simple but complex idea I started this little Catholic blog.

Through the constant support of Priests, my parents, and countless others, I have grown in my faith and been able to stay strong in the true Catholic faith.
I am a first year university student who is dedicated to his faith. All my life, faith has played an important role in who I was and who I am. Faith and learning more and more about it has been who I am. I have been an altar server since grade 2 where i would begin by just holding the book on my head for the priest during the opening prayer.
Over three years I created this simple little blog to share my thoughts and reflections on the faith, on the Sunday scripture readings. I've had a couple of previous blogs, but prayer, the central action of any Christians life, has always compelled me. That we mortals can have direct communication to our creator through humbling ourselves. Humbling ourselves and acknowledging that their is something greater, something more that we need, and that this greater being is in fact the merciful Father. Prayer deepens our faith. It grows the roots of faith more deeply into our hearts. Through prayer we can hear God and how he is calling us to be more merciful to others.
Thank You for stopping by at my little corner of the internet called Pray To God Today. It means a lot to me that you stop by and take the time to read the posts that I produce. As of now, the schedule for blog posts is: One for sure of Sundays and Thursday
