The Art of Praying

by Fr Romano Guardini

You've matured, but have your prayers? Has your understanding of prayer matured since you learned to pray at your mother's knee? Or, like many of us, do you continue to pray, year after year, as you were taught as a child?

If your prayers are difficult or boring, your problem may not be so much failure of will (you do try to pray well) as lack of knowledge about how mature souls pray. Most of us have been doing it so long that we pray automatically without really thinking about it.

The good news is that such problems are easily overcome!

This remarkable book offers practical ways that you can improve your prayers today and grow closer to God.

Learn:

-How to overcome distractions

-How to pray when your heart is empty

-How to avoid monotony

-The best posture for prayer ... and more!

Romano Guardini (1885-1968) was ordained a priest in 1910. He was a professor at the University of Berlin until the Nazis expelled him in 1939. His sermons, books, popular classes, and his involvement in the post-war German Catholic Youth Movement won him worldwide acclaim. His works combine a keen thirst for God with a profound depth of thought and a delightful perfection of expression.
