REFLECTION QUESTIONS from Mother’s Rule of Life by Holly Pierlot
“What types of prayer practices do I think are reasonable for any Christian to do on “a daily basis?
What limitations or special circumstances do I or my family have?
Do my children interrupt what prayer I do now?
If so, how can I help prevent this? Can my husband or older children help me out?
When are there natural lulls in my day when I could arrange for the children to be occupied in a safe and healthful way so that I can pray?
Decide upon some basic time slots, no matter how short, to set aside for prayer. Which prayer practices do I want to schedule in which time slots? Which time slots do I want to leave free to choose a form of prayer spontaneously? Decide, and write everything down… Is there someplace I can pray without distraction? Can I create a prayer spot, with easy access to my Bible, Rosary, Catechism, and other prayer aids?… sometime today or tomorrow, set it up.
How often do I think is reasonable to get to Confession? When can I do this?
How often can I get to Mass? What about the children? What about spiritual direction? What about Spiritual formation, when will I listen/read these resources?
Now, beginning immediately with your next scheduled prayer sessions, drop everything else, and just start praying!”
