Margaret Silf Prayer book

A brief but useful book on the topic of prayer.

The author speaks of prayer as not something that we do, but as a way of living.
She speaks of prayer as a way to nourish our relationship with God. In prayer, we can speak the truth, & know that we’ll be received without judgement or rejection (unlike many other relationships!).

There are, says Margaret, as many different ways to pray as there are different people desiring to pray. The author then gives various suggestions of types/situations for prayer, & invites the reader to taste/try as many or as few as they wish! …
When I’m concerned…
When I don’t know what to say…
When I’m furious…
When I’m too tired…
…and several more.
Each time, there are pointers which will aid our praying in such situations.

Then there are suggestions for creative prayer, prayer without words, praying with Scripture, praying with others… Distractions…
Could read it in a few minutes, or could take hours reflecting on what is written within this little book. If you struggle with prayer, or if you just want a change from how you perhaps usually pray, this book could help you.
