Your time in the Adoration Chapel is a wonderful way to escape the busy world we live in today. This is an opportunity to spend quiet time with Jesus and for prayer and silent reflection. This hour Jesus wants you to spend with Him is spent any way you want. You may bring your own Bible, prayer books, use the books in the chapel, pray the rosary, or just sit and relax and enjoy the sweet peace that comes from simply being in the Presence of God. You may feel that you can’t pray well. Don’t let this discourage you. The mere fact that you take time out at a specific time each week to spend an hour with Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament pleases Him very much and is in itself a prayer of great faith.
