Going Deeper in Prayer   A National Tragedy  Contemplative Prayer

"Going Deeper in Prayer Mission" by Damian Stayne and Father Francis Martin. Contemplative Prayer (Colossians 4:2) says: Devote yourselves to prayer. Jesus gave two commandments about love. Every prayer that is not contextually in the two commandments is not prayer. We come to prayer to love and be loved. Continuous prayer (1 Thessalonians 5:17) says to pray unceasingly. How can we do that today? Praying with scriptures. St. Jerome says ignorance of scripture is ignorance of Christ. God loves to teach us through His Word. Listen as you pray so He can talk to you.

  • September 19 & 26, 2012:

Part I, Sept. 19 & Part II, Sept. 26

We are created to praise, love, and reverence God, and to work out our salvation. The Rules for Discernment, as developed by St. Ignatius of Loyola, are an aid to enter the breadth and depth of our life so we may be open to experience the loving presence of Our Lord in heartfelt prayer.

“Jesus was praying in a certain place, and when He ceased, one of his disciples said to Him, ‘Lord, teach us to pray, as John taught his disciples.’” (Luke 11:1) Why pray the Lord's Prayer as a basis of a prayer life?

Damian Stayne's Charism School

Damian’s desire is to equip Catholics to be able to impact their spheres of influence. The focus was on prophecy, word of knowledge, faith and deliverance.

  • September 21, 2011:


(From an 1828 edition of Webster’s dictionary) Prophecy: a foretelling; prediction; a declaration of something to come.  As God only knows future events with certainty, no being but God, or some person informed by Him, can utter a real prophecy.  The prophecies recorded in scripture, when fulfilled, afford most convincing evidence of the divine origin of the Scriptures, as those who uttered the prophecies could not have foreknown the events predicted without supernatural instruction.  

  • June 1, 2011:

Intercession On The Hoof

We have a problem! I don’t know how to pray BUT the Holy Spirit helps us in our weakness. For example, we don’t know what God wants us to pray for. But the Holy Spirit prays for us with groanings that cannot be expressed in words. Intercession on the hoof is prayer outside of our prayer closet.
