The Ancient Roots of Christian Prayer with Shane Kapler

The liturgy and the Bible teach us many great prayers that people have been memorizing for centuries, but we rarely think about the roots of those prayers and what else they might reveal about Our Lord. Today Michael talks with author Shane Kapler about the Jewish roots of our Catholic prayer tradition and how even the most seemingly-basic prayers offer us a glimpse of God’s great love and how we can increase our love for Him. As well, Shane offers some encouraging words for praying through suffering and how to pray when the words just won’t come out.


Shane Kapler is an evangelist and author who has written numerous articles and several books. You can find about his books and speaking events by visiting his site, Explaining Christianity From Its Center, as well his articles here on Catholic Exchange.
