A listener named Jesus calls in and asks, "How do I know if I'm praying reverently?" Father Dave explains that reverence comes in many different forms. He says that he would define reverence with the question, "Is your heart in it?" Reverence is not the absence of joy, and we should focus on what is going on in our hearts and if our prayer is sincere. Original Air 11-29-177
