Overview

Love: A Guide for Prayer offers 36 meditations that will lead Christians to a deeper experience of God's love and a recognition of his presence and activity in their daily lives. Based on the model of conversion found in the Spiritual Exercises of St. Ignatius, each meditation features a Scripture passage, a short commentary, and a suggested approach to prayer for that day. Wherever we find ourselves in our journey through life, Love: A Guide for Prayer will meet us where we are and lead us to the fountain of love and mercy which is Christ. This is the first book in a series entitled Take and Receive. Each of these titles offers support and direction for private prayer and can also be used in prayer groups, faith-sharing groups, and Bible studies. Spiritual directors and retreat leaders will find the series to be invaluable in helping others to discover-or rediscover-God's personal love for them. The authors, Jacqueline Syrup Bergan and Marie Schwan, CSJ, have extensive backgrounds leading retreats, parish days of renewal and prayer, and spirituality workshops.
