It’s great to have a friend. It’s even greater to have a friend who not only prays, but joins you in prayer. Check out the latest episode of Among Women as we prepare to welcome the Year of Faith and search for ways to grow in sharing our faith with others. Here’s one idea: pray with your Catholic and Christian friends. My friend, and one of my prayer buddies, Maria Johnson (blogger at Another Cup of Coffee and co-host of SQPN’s Catholic Weekend) joins me for this episode as we explore what praying together looks like and what it has wrought in our lives. I wrote about this idea here in a previous column on Patheos, but this episode exemplifies what it might look like when we put it into practice on a regular basis.
Also, I read selections from St Teresa of Avila whose feast day arrives soon on October 15th. Episode 146 of the Among Women podcast is all about the power of a praying friend.
