10 Ways of conversing with God when you experience dryness in prayer

When you are stuck in the spiritual life, try these helpful tips.

There can be times in our spiritual life when it is difficult to pray or meditate and we may not know what to do next. This can make prayer an arduous chore and not something enjoyable.

When met with such difficulties, we can look to French Trappist monk Dom Jean-Baptiste Chautard, who writes about 10 different ways of conversing with God in his spiritual classic, The Soul of the Apostolate. He proposes various ideas that can be helpful to a soul in need of inspiration and those who need to liven up their spiritual life.
