Overview
This comprehensive guide opens a world of imaginative yet simple ways to approach individual prayer. Breaking through boundaries and stereotypes Silf shows prayer as a journey into reflective living. She invites readers to experience prayer as a natural, organic process and offers a powerful vision of what personal prayer can be. Silf's stories and suggestions, drawn from contemporary life, are solid and practical. She explains, "This book sets the scene for deep personal prayer by suggesting ways of inner stillness and reflective living. It tempts the reader to search for 'clues to the kingdom' on the sidewalks of his or her own hometown."
