Meditative Prayer based on 0 ratings. 1 reviews.
In this 'little blue book' Richard Foster speaks of the secret hiding place in God found through contemplative prayer. It's similar to what some today have coined 'soaking prayer' Richard talks about how to find that place of oneness with God and live and out of that place, giving a pattern a beginner may follow, if needed. He uses teachings and quotes from many of the profound contemplative 'mystics' of past and present, such as Jeanne Guyon, Teresa of Avila, brother Lawrence, Thomas a Kempis, Mother Teresa, and Henri Nowen amongst others. I would highly recommend this book to anyone seeking information on contemplative/medatative/soaking prayer. if you're already practicing this method, I'd recommend you buy this book in multiple quantities and pass as tracks. Many have found a deeper path with the Lord as a result of this 'little blue book.' I believe this book is being packaged as a quantity of 5. You may want to double check. They're usually sold for $1.00 to $1.50 each
