Item Description...
Overview
Praying people have long relied on meditative or extemporaneous prayer to express their feelings and yearnings to God. Traditional prayer, often considered rote, tends to be neglected. In The Words We Pray, author Amy Welborn offers an insightful exploration into eighteen traditional prayers and the vital role they play in the spiritual life. This enchanting prayer book includes the history and traditional use of each prayer as well as personal anecdotes to show why the body of Catholic traditional prayers is "a treasure worth rediscovering." "When we explore the history of how these prayers were composed and used, "Welborn explains, "we hook into those original impulses that gave birth to the words and shaped them, impulses we still share." From the psalms to traditional Marian prayers to the Lord's Prayer to Amen, the prayers explored in The Words We Pray are gifts from the past that can be used to great benefit today.

More About Amy Welborn

Amy Welborn Amy Welborn is a well-known, popular freelance writer. She is the author of many books on prayer, the saints and apologetics. Amy lives with her family in Birmingham, Alabama.

In the author's own words...

I was born in 1960, an only child then and now. My father,a political scientist, passed away in October 2011. My mother, deceased since 2001, was a teacher, librarian and artist. The Catholicism comes from her side.

I grew up in a number of places - Indiana - Washington, DC - Lubbock Texas - Arlington, Virginia - DeKalb, Illinois - Lawrence, Kansas - and Knoxville, Tennessee, where we settled in 1973. I attended Knoxville Catholic High School, then the University of Tennessee where I majored in history. I received an MA in Church History from Vanderbilt University, where I wrote a thesis on the changing role of women in 19th century American Protestantism, and the ways Scripture was used to justify those changes.

I have worked as a teacher in Catholic high schools, and a Parish Director of Religious Education. I started writing for the diocesan press - the Florida Catholic - in 1988. I've written columns for Our Sunday Visitor and Catholic News Service as well at times over the past twenty years. I've been writing full time since 1999. My articles have been published in venues ranging from Our Sunday Visitor to the New York Times to Commonweal. I've written nineteen books and many pamphlets and study guides. I am a regular contributor to the Living Faith and Living Faith for Kids devotionals.

I have five children, ranging in age from 29 to 7.

For 8 1/2 happy years beginning in 2000, I was married to Michael Dubruiel, who had worked as an editor for Our Sunday Visitor for nine years, but in the summer of 2008 changed jobs to serve as Director of Evangelization for the Diocese of Birmingham, Alabama.

On February 3, 2009, Michael died while running on the treadmill at the gym. My new book,Wish You Were Here: Travels Through Loss and Hope, is a memoir of those first few months, which included a sort of crazy decision to travel to Sicily.

Amy Welborn currently resides in Fort Wayne, in the state of Indiana. Amy Welborn was born in 1960.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
The Words We Pray: Discovering the Richeness of Traditional Catholic Prayers  Jul 24, 2007
Excellent!!! Amy Welborn is an awesome author, our bible study enjoys reading any of her books.
 
Why use old prayers  Feb 23, 2006
Discovering the history and the sense of being part of the communion of saints is what this book does well. The author is frank about her very subjective perspective, so that nobody can expect a scholarly treatment of the subject. It does well what it sets out to do.
 
Terrific resource will enrich your prayer life Immeasurably   Oct 27, 2004
Most Catholics, whether they actively practice their faith or not, can recite the words to the Hail Mary as instinctively as they tie their shoelaces. They may not know the meaning or origin of the words they pray, but the prayer itself is a part of their core, their identity, their soul. In her latest book The Words We Pray (Loyola Press, October 2004, paperback, 210 pages), Amy Welborn gives her readers a gift - the gift of prayer, of knowing not only the words to our favorite prayers, but the stories behind them and the occasions in life when turning to them can provide solace and joy.

I have long admired Welborn's ability to write. Picking up one of her books, or treating yourself to an article she's written is like a combination of having lunch with a friend and a tutoring session with a knowledgeable mentor. The Words We Pray continues this tradition for me, as Amy Welborn captures so effectively the essence and origin of traditional Catholic prayers. The book opens with Welborn's heartfelt description of her own "journey" towards an eventual embracing of prayers such as the Salve Regina.

The true stars of The Words We Pray are the prayers themselves. Welborn has included eighteen of the most popular and powerful Catholic prayers, and has richly described their histories and traditions. When we as Catholics turn to God in communication using these wonderful gems of our Faith, we take our place in the Communion of Saints who have over countless years turned to these prayers to seek intercession and aid. Welborn's book concludes with an interesting discussion of "where our prayers go" and the value of praying vocally, using traditional prayers. The Words We Pray serves not only as a valuable reference, but also as an invitation to a deeper and richer prayer life.
