Whether you are a beginner at prayer or fully engaged in the life of prayer, this little book will offer profound insight and encouragement. Emilie Griffin discusses the relentless human hunger for prayer, the seeming elusiveness of God, the pitfalls of discouragement and doubt, and the whispers of consolation that come through prayer. She invites us ultimately to put the book down, to mend the ragged edges of our own prayer lives, and to set out once again on the remarkable adventure that is prayer.
