At times, I find it very hard to pray. Is prayer easier when you become a priest?

Priests are just like anybody else. Sometimes they find prayer easy, sometimes they don’t. But what they learn through experience and training is that just like love, being committed to prayer in good times and in bad, gives great depth and meaning to their lives. Prayer, like love, is an act of the will. It’s something you do whether you feel like it or not.

Sometimes prayer is difficult because God is deepening and strengthening your faith. Sometimes it is difficult because you are going about it the wrong way.  You may need spiritual guidance to find out what kinds of prayer – and there are many – are most suitable for you.
