Have you ever felt unsure about how to pray or frustrated by dryness in your time of prayer? Do you read about the prayer of the saints and feel discouraged that your own prayer life is so mundane? Would you like to pray better?
This book will help. Written in a simple and modern style, author Jacques Philippe draws on years of experience as a spiritual guide to illuminate the fundamental principles of true prayer and describes some common mistakes and misconceptions that can lead it astray. Time for God provides real help for anyone wanting to make better use of their time with God.
“Today’s believers need a presentation of the Church’s traditional teaching that is simple and easily accessible, adapted to today’s outlook and expressed in today’s language. Such a presentation also needs to take account of the pedagogy that God in his wisdom is using today to lead souls to holiness; it is not always the same as in past centuries. These, then, are the reasons which moved me to write this book." --Rev. Jacques Philippe, from the introduction.
