Good Book: 50 Ways to Pray
Today I want to mention a book I received recently called "50 Ways to Pray: Practices from Many Traditions and Times" by Teresa A. Blythe (Abingdon Press, 2006). It is a very practical book. Each of the exercises includes not only instructions on how to use it as a prayer practice, but also some background, an introduction, a statement of intention and tips to help you with the practice. The author hopes this book will provide at least fifty ways you you may take steps in a lifelong walk with God.
There are many ways to go to God and this book helps us to find them. Remember that I think the best way for one to pray is the way one prays best.
Pray as you can, not as you can't!
