 Our Description

Praying Constantly: Bringing Your Faith to Life by Fr. Benedict Groeschel C.F.R.

Just what did the Apostle Paul mean when he said, Pray without ceasing (1 Thess. 5:17)?

In this perceptive and timely book, celebrated spiritual teacher Benedict Groeschel demonstrates how the combination of grace with enduring Christian truths and practices will enable you to experience a deep, rewarding prayer life that in effect, permeates everything you do.

But Groeschel is not implying everyone should join a monastery. In fact, he points out that half of the communication equation has already been solved by ordinary Christians. God, who created humans in His image, is constantly trying to get in touch with us. He uses the gift of our senses, the beauty of creation, and the riches of music, art, and literature as a kind of celestial call-waiting system.

The challenge confronting us is to answer the call by cultivating an awareness of God's loving presence. The foundation for doing so is to establish and maintain a schedule of daily prayer, thereby creating a framework for communication with God. In addition, the Church offers a lavish variety of resources to support our personal efforts, from daily Mass attendance, to praying the Rosary, to engaging in the ancient practice of lectio divina. As we let God touch our spirits, we will begin to practice contemplation, a prerequisite for regarding everything in our lives as spiritual exercises.

This remarkable book uses the testimonies of Scripture and of the lives of saints through the ages to show how you can make your words and actions a river of unceasing prayer.

This item received 5 stars overall. Excellent prayer resource for all backgrounds & experience levels!

I recently had the opportunity to read Fr. Benedict J Groeschel's newest book, Praying Constantly: Bringing Your Faith to Life.   As a mother who tends to have perfectionist tendencies, I'm always reading to find out just what praying constantly REALLY means.   Obviously, I have my particularly busy station in life and cannot live like I was in a monestary (though, it *IS* nice to do once in a while).   It's hard to wrap my head around what that means for someone in non-consecrated life.

Fr. Groeschel's book gave me some excellent insights that I didn't have before.   The first couple of chapters cover the basics of Christianity -- how to pray, praying in a "dry spell", and who God is, making this an excellent book for someone who isn't even very religious or who may not be sure they believe at all.   The nex Full Review...
