"Prayer is a journey--a journey into God and a journey to the deepest, hidden levels of ourselves. To embark on a life of prayer is to begin a journey of discovery. As we grow and change, so our praying will grow and deepen too."
People of all backgrounds pray. Many are longing to make a spiritual connection with something or someone bigger than themselves. In this book Sue Mayfield introduces readers to the mufti-faceted subject of prayer.
"Exploring Prayer" is divided into two parts: the first half looks at the many aspects of prayer, such as celebration, encounter, penitence, and listening; the second half explores different ways of praying, such as praying with the imagination, praying with music, praying with our senses, and praying through creativity. Each chapter also has suggested exercises to help readers to discover what works for them. Using contemporary quotes and full-color illustrations, this practical and accessible book will enable readers to explore the adventure of prayer for themselves.
