St. John of Kronstadt on the key to building faith in prayer.
We know that our faith is supposed to be built up through prayer, but it’s hard to know how this can happen. St. John of Kronstadt gives us one key—honesty:
If you wish that God should speedily give you hearty faith in prayer, strive with all your heart to speak and to do everything in regard to other people sincerely, and never be deceitful in your dealings with them. If you are straightforward and truthful with others, then God will give you straightforwardness and sincere faith also in reference to Himself.
The only way to grow in our faith in the God of Truth is to be true ourselves.
"Our family has loved AFR and it has been a big blessing. It's constantly on in the car, at work, and at home. We especially enjoy it for our journey to attend services at our parish. It's excellent for getting your mind and spirit ready for worship. Even our 4-year-old daughter asks us to "play that church music!" The talk shows and podcasts are very informative, and we like the wide range of topics covered."
