Clare Cannon

A clear and simple book that goes straight to the heart of prayer: how to prepare for it, how to do it well, and what to expect from it. He writes with a full awareness of the way we live today which makes all he suggests highly relevant, yet his text also has a level of refinement which makes it appeal to a broader audience. Young and old will find his advice a helpful re-working of the classic writings on prayer and discernment. Highly recommended.
I don't feel that I came across any earth-shattering revelations or crazy new ways to focus my prayer, but maybe that's not the point. This book did give a lot of great, back-to-basics ideas and tips for strengthening and deepening one's prayer life.

Read it at the same time as Consoling the Heart of Jesus and thought they really fed off of each other. Loved them both!

I began reading this book before but I never had the opportunity to finish it. I think it was interesting so I decided to come back to it for this quarter. I think this book would help me spiritually and will hopefully make me stronger in that part of my life.
Great book. I love Father Mitch and he gives great advice about prayer and listening to God. These are practical things that can be used by anyone. It is written in layman's terms.

“Spontaneous prayer, sincerely expressed, may be a very important way to speak to the Lord. However, the prayers that we have received from the Church are important ways of teaching us how to pray in theologically correct ways and may even be superior if our spontaneous prayers express untrue notions of God or our relationship to him.” 1 likes
