A New Catholic Prayer Study for Inmates

praying handsDismas Ministry recently launched a new inmate correspondence course called Pray Always-A Catholic Prayer Study for Inmates. Like the ministry’s two other courses, this unique course is designed especially for Catholic inmates who want to learn more about their own faith tradition and be able to defend it against challenges from prison volunteers, staff and fellow inmates.

The course includes a series of three resource books that together provide a comprehensive review of how and why Catholics pray. The first book, Part 1: Prayer in the Old Testament, includes the lives of the great women and men of ancient Israel and examples of how they prayed.This first part presents the background for the next book, Part 2: Prayer in the New Testament. In this part of the course, Jesus, Mary, the disciples and other people of Jesus’ ministry are presented as models of prayer. How the psalms and temple worship influenced Christian prayer are explored. Part 3: Prayer in the Catholic Tradition explores how Catholics have prayed from early to modern times.

    Hi, I think your site could be having web
    browser compatibility issues. When I look at your blog in Safari, it looks fine however, when opening in Internet Explorer, it has some overlapping
    issues. I just wanted to provide you with a quick heads up!
    Other than that, wonderful blog!

    I don’t know whether it’s just me or if everybody else encountering problems with your site.

    It appears like some of the written text on your content are running off the screen.
    Can somebody else please provide feedback and let me know if this is
    happening to them too? This might be a issue with my web browser because I’ve had this happen previously. Kudos

    First of all I would like to say awesome blog!
    I had a quick question which I’d like to ask if you do not mind. I was curious to find out how you center yourself and clear your head before writing. I have had trouble clearing my mind in getting my thoughts out there. I truly do enjoy writing however it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes tend to be lost simply just trying to figure out how to begin. Any ideas or hints? Cheers!

      Hi Jana!

      I think thats perfectly normal! I usually have a specific subject and goal for each post in mind before I start writing so that helps a lot. However, I often spend 15 to 30 minutes revising how I want to word everything and I have several people proofread. One idea the might help you get started is to begin by writing lists of topics that you are interested in posting about and then writing about one that appeals to you the most that day or that you have a lot of content on. Just a thought! Hope this helps.

    Hey there! I know this is kind of off topic but I was wondering which blog platform are you using for this website?
    I’m getting sick and tired of WordPress because I’ve had issues with hackers and I’m looking at alternatives for another platform. I would be awesome if you could point me in the direction of a good platform.

    I tend not to leave a leave a response, but I browsed through some remarks on this page A New Catholic Prayer Study for
    Inmates | Dismas Ministry. I do have a few questions for you if you tend not to mind.

    Is it only me or does it give the impression like a few of the
    comments appear like they are left by brain dead individuals?
    😛 And, if you are posting on other places, I’d like to follow you. Could you list of every one of your social networking pages like your twitter feed, Facebook page or linkedin profile?
