"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, and 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.
