Segment 2 & 3 – When You Pray: A Clear Path to a Deeper Relationship with God
“You know prayer is important but still find it challenging. Perhaps it’s hard to find time, or you’re unsure what to do when you pray. Or maybe you feel discouraged by your weaknesses and your inability to overcome them. If you have any of these feelings, you are not alone. Many of the saints struggled in prayer. They were like us. But each time they fell, they got up again and learned to rely more on God’s grace.”  Dr. Sri joins us to discuss his new book and study program.

He has written several best-selling books, including “Into His Likeness: Be Transformed as a Disciple,” “Walking with Mary” and “Who Am I to Judge?

He holds a doctorate from the Pontifical University of St. Thomas Aquinas in Rome and is an adjunct professor at the Augustine Institute.
