What is prayer? Why do we do it - or wish we could do it? How do we begin to turn the deepest stirrings inside us into the words and the silences of prayer? When we pray, who are we praying to? Where should we pray? Is prayer just as effective and real on the bus or at work as it is in church? Is prayer for the bad days as well as the good days? These are just some of the questions Margaret Silf explores in this handy book. Written in short chunks of text for the reader to dip in and out of, this book encourages the reader to begin to find their own answers to these questions. Publishing at the same time as On Making Choices by the same author.
Margaret Silf is a writer and a frequent leader of retreats and conferences. She has been trained by the Jesuits in accompanying people in prayer and is author of One Hundred Wisdom stories and One Hundred More Wisdom stories, as well as The Wisdom of St Ignatius of Loyola. She has been described by The Tablet as 'one of the most talented spiritual writers'.
