    Host: How do I practice consideration prayer?

    Rev. Joseph McCloskey: I have thought about you coming in the chance to explain prayer and share prayer. So I was considering all the questions that you could possibly ask me. Preferably I was considering if I only got this one chance and people have been coming to see me for as many as 20 years. They keep on growing in their prayer, what can I say in 60 minutes or 20 minutes or whatever the length of our tape is, that could really capture all of the prayer. If I can give you the freedom to speak your mind to God there is no way I am going to be able to teach you but if you are free to bring your day to God then the prayer becomes a consideration of what's happening during the day or what happened yesterday. What you need to improve on? So it's the prayer consideration because you are applying it to your life and to your day.
