Lord Teach Us to Pray, written by Nicholas Hutchinson FSC (author of Praying Each Day of the Year), is a 50-day course of guided personal prayer.
Written for busy people, it is down-to-earth and user-friendly, sharing various ways of praying that have “worked well” for many others.
It is a practical book for people of all ages. It will be of particular use to school chaplains and others looking for ways to renew and refresh both their own prayer and the prayer lives of others in their community.
Each day’s text guides us through the stages of relaxing, asking the Spirit to pray in us, and focusing on God’s Presence. Reflection and prayer then lead on to some ‘Action’ as a follow-up later in the day. The book is complete it itself, but an added bonus is the option to access extensive Internet resources – over 140 prayer websites and wide-ranging web pages of photos or inspiring paintings.
