Moreover, you will find sooner rather than later that God is active and hard working PERSON.THE BEST FRIEND OF YOURS and mine, too.And demanding,too.
HOW COME you may ASK?
Well, read this book and you will find out in every second of your life.
But first of all apply this book, YES this is the book for those who apply reading to their own life. NOT for those who put the books aside.
And be quick to buy it. It is precious one.

In Jesuit spirituality enormous emphasis is placed on the form of prayer called the Examen. Ignatius Loyola would dispense his followers from virtually any religious observance but never from the Examen. When this exercise was understood as looking at the commandments and at personal violations of the commandments -- an examination of conscience really, a preparation for confession -- the prayer was negative in feel and its importance on a daily basis was difficult to fathom. But once the essence of the exercise was rediscovered as on-going discernment of God's presence, activity, self-revelation and calling-- an examination of consciousness -- the emphasis was understandable. The foreword to the book incidentally is written by Fr. George Aschenbrenner, SJ, whose 1972 article was pivotal in the rediscovery of the examen. Not many books have been written since on the topic, and this is the best I have come across so far. Gallagher uses the five main points of Ignatius in his Spiritual Exercises: gratitude for God's gifts, petition for God's grace, review of the day, forgiveness for our failings, renewal for the future. He explains not only the prayer itself, but the motives, settings, results, etc. He draws on a day in the life of Ignatius to illustrate the prayer and on dozens of examples to illustrate the way people in all walks of life have prayed and adapted it. For anyone seeking to find God and God's will in their lives, this form of prayer and this excellent guide are both recommended.
