Inspired by Jesus' prayer, his disciples asked him, 'Lord, teach us to pray' (Luke 11.1). This book gives many time-honoured answers to that request. There is a wealth here of fresh ways to pray, such as using nature and dreams as inspiration and getting in touch with one's emotions. Key topics such as distractions, dryness and doubt, as well as joy and finding God in all things, are covered. The Church's tradition, from the Our Father to the Eucharist, the saints and pilgrimages, is offered as a resource for the individual.
`God meets you where you are. And the fact that you are holding this book in your hand means you are already open to that encounter.'
