Prayer: Where to start and how to keep going [9781781402146]

(No reviews yet) Write a Review

It's the simplest thing in the world, yet it can seem so difficult. It's as natural as breathing, yet it's hard to find the right words. Just how do you learn to pray? This practical, illustrated guide considers ten basic questions about prayer and offers simple helps for making prayer a part of everyday life.
These include:
* What prayer is;
* When and where to pray;
* Whether words are always needed;
* What to do when prayer seems impossible;
* Praying alone and with others.

No one ever becomes an expert in prayer, but this book sets out to help you become more open to God's presence, which is the heart of prayer. It draws on the wisdom of Christians across the ages and offers a selection of easily-memorized favourite prayers to encourage you as you journey into prayer.

This guide is adapted from a larger book first published as Praying Through Life and reissued as How to Pray.

AUTHOR: Stephen Cottrell is the Archbishop of York, and a prolific and much-loved author. He has previously served as Bishop of Chelmsford, Bishop of Reading, and Canon Pastor at Peterborough Cathedral. Stephen is a co-author of the Pilgrim course.
