Prayer is as natural as breathing. In every major religious tradition the spirit of God is the source of our life breath, and prayer is the rhythm of inhaling and exhaling the breath of God. Nancy Roth brings together simple instructions in basic Christian prayer forms--contemplation, reflection, verbal prayer, and the prayer of activism--with a theology that makes prayer as simple as breathing. Breath and prayer exercises at the end of each chapter are further aids in finding God in and through our bodies.
"Every section of this book reveals God to be wholly available in the common round that comprises our days. Nancy Roth is a sure teacher of prayer." --Janet Ruffing, RSM, Professor of Spritual Direction, Fordham University
"The point of contact between sprituality and the arts, as a preparation for the deeper levels of prayer, is Roth's natural terrain."
"Full of ideas and gentle encouragement for those who seek to pray."
"A book to be recommended highly for individual use, course teaching on prayer, and as a wide-ranging outline for prayer groups."
--Gordon Jeff, Spiritual Directors International
