Prayer: A Practical Guide

"Lord, teach us to pray." The apostles made this request. Inquirers, catechumens and those returning to the practice of the faith as well as lifelong Catholics ask the same question today. Father Martin Pable, an experienced spiritual teacher, offers a practical, down-to-earth explanation.

In a clear, concise style filled with practical examples he explains the most popular forms of prayer. Chapters include: Why Pray, Praying Traditional Prayers, Conversational Prayer, Praying with the Bible, Meditation and Contemplation, Prayer for Healing, Praying with Others, and The Mass as Prayer. Each chapter ends with questions for reflection or discussion and suggestions for prayer activities.

"My hope is that this book will serve as an invitation to pray — better, more often, with more fervor and greater fulfillment — whether you are just beginning to pray, have done so all your life, or are searching for new or different ways to communicate with God." — FROM THE CONCLUSION
