When You Pray

Binding: Paperback

Pagination: 108pp

Publisher: Messenger Publications

ISBN: J140


This book had its beginnings in a series of 10-minute talks on prayer given to those on retreat at the Jesuit retreat centre at Manresa in Dublin.

These talks are aimed at helping all who are seriously interested in personal prayer and the author provides comprehensive directions on how to prayer. He includes chapters on prayer as journey, on images of God and on right desire in prayer.

The final chapters look at review of prayer, guidance for the next time of prayer and on the Sign of the Cross as prayer. There is also a useful guide to getting the most from a retreat, and a summary of the author’s Steps of Approach to Prayer.
