Bruce I can’t begin to tell you how much your messages have blessed me. My prayer life has been transformed and I will be forever thankful. Well done indeed, good and faithful servant.

I PRAY AS IF I’M TALKING TO MY BEST FRIEND,THEN MY GUIDE AND NEVER FORGET TO PRAISE HIM,AS THIS IS THE ONLY THING GOD CAN’T DO,IS PRAISE HIMSELF,I PRAY DAILY WHILE WAKING,EVEN IN THE BATH;WHICH I FIND MY SANCTUARY AS WATER IS A GOD SYMBOL,IT GIVES LIFE AND TAKES LIFE AND WE ARE FILLED WITH WATER;LIKE THE HOLY SPIRT,THINKING OF GOD AS ONE VERY CLOSE MAKES PRAYER EASY,NOT A TASK USING BIG WORDS AND WHEN YOU RUN OUT OF WORDS,JUST FOCUS UPON HIM,HE HEARS YOUR THOUGHTS..

If I run out of words, then I just say thank you, for all of it over 79 years, for all of the good the bad and the awful. It has been a wild and wonderful journey

Thank you Bruce for this very relevant and timely advice!!! Usually I have the opposite problem where I write and ponder and write then think of the best way of expressing my thoughts and feelings in writing and write. Then I look towards my clock and realise I’ve spent hours. But the other day and today not so!!!Thank you for your practical and at the same time spiritual advice Bruce! May you be blessed Bruce along with Rosemary and all who work in the ministries!!! I’ll be seeing you tomorrow Bruce!

You were speaking to me today! I have am experiencing a dry prayer period and missed the last month of your videos. I am going to commit to “just turn up”. Thank you.

Can the 15 minutes of prayer consist of praying the rosary, reading scripture or reading prepared prayers or does it have to be quiet meditation?

Hello Michael This is a great question and one I use to ask. Firstly, let me say there are many ways to pray and connect with God.

As a Catholic Christian sometimes all of the set prayers and routines can be impersonal even though they can have great meaning and are prayer. God wants us to encounter Him as… Read more »

This message was the best. I feel guilty when I don’t feel like praying and you’ve shown me I’m not the only one who sometimes feels like that. But, if I could go to Jesus and tell him I am here and just sit quietly… That’s a plan. Thank you so much and God bless you.

Bruce I have a difficult time quietly just sitting with Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. My mind will NOT stop wandering. Any suggestions for a person like me?
