A Book of Quiet Prayer: For All the Seasons, Stages, Moods, and Circumstances of Life
"This is a book about praying--"special, sometimes privileged conversations and communications with God," writes author William Byron. But it is much more than a prayer book. Not only does it suggest ways and words for turning to God, but it also encourages readers to seek inspiration and compose prayers on their own. The author touches readers in a gentle, practical, life-enhancing way. He invites us to let God touch our lives on our own terms and timetable, wherever we may be and in whatever age, state of mind, or situation in which we happen to be. One need not read this reflective work from the beginning straight through; it is meant to be a prompter when we want to reach out to God but are stuck for the right words to use in making contact.
