The practice of spiritual direction assumes a theology of the Holy Spirit, a theology of revelation and of the Church, and a theology of prayer. Seeking God in All Things explores each of these themes as the underpinnings of spiritual direction and examines what makes the Christian religious experience distinctive. Since not every experience of God bears a Christian imprint, William Reiser, SJ, asks whether and in what way a Christian might be ale to assist someone who is not Christian in developing his or her interior life. This question looks beyond suggesting the concrete steps a person might take in initiating, nurturing, and solidifying a way of praying. It looks, rather, toward the fundamental issue of helping others as they discover and deepen their relationship to the mystery of God. Chapters are It Is God Who Directs," *Imagining Divine Action in Human Lives, - *Where Do Holy Desires Come From? - *What's Distinctive About the Christian Religious Experience? - *Further Elements of Christian Distinctiveness, - *The Incarnation as a Starting Point for Spiritual Direction, - and *Should Christian Spirituality Move Beyond Jesus? - William Reiser, SJ, PhD, is a professor of theology in the religious studies department at Holy Cross College, Worcester, Massachusetts. Over the past twelve years, he has also served as an associate staff member at the Center for Religious Development in Cambridge. He is the author of Jesus in Solidarity with His People, published by Liturgical Press. "

Not just for church and other public occasions, the Book of Common Prayer is an incredible resource for private and intimate conversations with God. It gives us rich words and phrases with which to pray, words that can slowly change our hearts and minds. Throughout his life as a priest, parent, teacher, head of school,and publisher, Ted Gleason has had thousands of conversations about prayer with children, teenagers, young adults, the middle-aged, and the elderly. This book is the fruit of those conversations as well as a love song to the words and cadences of the Book of Common Prayer. Gleason shows us how his long immersion in the prayers of the eucharist and morning prayer have been pathways to a deeper understanding of the presence of God. A gifted storyteller, Gleason has also filled this book with the vivid stories of others who pray and what happens when they do. He urges us to return to the practice of the presence of God every day of our lives, of which this book is a living and vivid example.

Starting each morning with God is a must. Studying the Holy Word and talking to God everyday can change your life. I set my alarm atleast 30 minutes early every day to allow time with God. Keeping a prayer journal helps me to focus on my prayer, crying out to God with an honest heart. God longs to hear from us. I started writing devotions to help me cope with difficult times and before I knew it, I set a goal of 365. Each of these devotions were revealed to me from God as we spent time together every morning and throughout the day. I hope these words will bless you as much as they have blessed me.

Christians often say, "In Jesus' name" to close their prayers. But is this truly a desire of the heart or a perfunctory "Yours Truly" to God? Bryan Chapell says we should begin our prayers in Jesus' name-we should be Praying Backwards. In this practical and inspiring book, he shows readers that to truly pray in Jesus' name is to reorder one's priorities in prayer-and in life-away from oneself and towards Jesus and his kingdom. It is to pray believing in the power and the goodness of the One who hears, and thus to pray boldly, expectantly, and persistently. Readers seeking to transform their prayer lives will find wonderful direction in Praying Backwards.

In "The Prayer Life," noted Christian author Andrew Murray addresses the problem of prayerlessness, a problem that knows no generational boundaries. Murray cuts to the heart of the problem, offering suggestions which, if followed, will have a serious impact on the life of the earnest reader. Murray explains that, since prayer is an outgrowth of abiding in Christ, prayerlessness is fundamentally a lack of abiding rather than simply a lack of prayer. "The Prayer Life" is a challenging call to a deeper Christian experience, out of which will naturally flow a life of prayer. Much more than a book on how to pray, "The Prayer Life" is a book on how to have a deeper spiritual walk.

Inspired To Pray

In this powerful and motivating book, international pastor Phil Pringle invites readers to activate their spiritual lives by understanding prayer as a journey to the highest places of God. He sees prayer as an "art," a craft to be developed and nurtured. Prayer is much more than muttering religious words; it is a connection with the God of heaven Himself. Too often, believers fail to bridge the gap between earth and heaven, but active prayer releases the spirit into communion with God in another world: His world. As readers grow, they will draw close to a loving God who desires relationship with all who are made in His image. Moreover, when we pray in close contact with God, we see greater results on earth and in our lives. Pringle appeals to the imagination and the soul, and all who engage with these visionary teachings will discover a new dimension to the act and the art of prayer.
