More About the Author

In the seventh grade, Marci received her first literary recognition for writing a zany Halloween story. The prize? A five dollar gift certificate to a local bookstore. In those days, they had local bookstores. She hasn't looked back since, and has just had her 21st book published. Marci's most recent titles, People of the Nativity, and Being the Body of Christ, are both published by Bayard's American publisher, Twenty-Third Publications. Twenty-Third will release her next book, Prepare to Heal!, in 2014.

Marci is a long-time contributor to Guideposts Books' Daily Guideposts, and her first hard-cover book for Guideposts, How to Pray When You Think You Can't, has sold over 70,000 copies. Her popular Guideposts novel, The Christmas Glass, has been translated into Norwegian and is selling in Norway in both hard - and soft - cover. It is also available as an e-book.

Marci's other publishers include ACTA Publications, Ave Maria Press/Notre Dame, Catholic Book Publishing, Liturgical Press, Resurrection Press, and Winslow House.

She and her husband, Charlie Duffy, live in New London, Connecticut, but are willing to go anywhere as long as they can stay at a Residence Inn near a Trader Joe's or Whole Foods.

She loves to hear from readers and can be reached at inklin@ntplx.net. You can follow her on Twitter ... when life as we know it comes to an end.

Format: Hardcover
Look at the cover of this book and it's hard to identify the title, because it's overshadowed by the descriptive subtitle "How to Pray When You Think You Can't." Turn to the table of contents and you discover a listing of potential situations in which you might feel distant from God: when you're ill, facing emotional problems, overwhelmed with care-giving responsibilities, grieving, doubting, feeling angry and fearful, feeling threatened, sensing failure, needing trust. So this is a book to have on hand and dip into at different seasons of life. And yet there are basic prayer pointers throughout to benefit someone who reads straight through, start to finish.

Marci Alborghetti's engaging style combines Scripture and biblical examples, personal anecdotes and teaching points. On two counts she brings to the table a Catholic perspective. First, she values written or memorized and repeated --- as well as spontaneous --- prayers. PRAYER POWER delightfully includes many original sample or starter prayers, gently suggested: try this to get unstuck. For future reference I have tagged a page of gospel prayers --- people's requests for or responses to Jesus's physical or spiritual healing. Alborghetti suggests, for example, "Pray with the Samaritan woman, who, when Jesus tells her about living water, says, `Sir, give me this water, so that I may never be thirsty' (John 4:15)." Every chapter ends with four standardized sections that include prayers or Scriptures: Thanksgiving, Psalm-as-Prayer, Suggested Closing Prayer and Bible Reference.

Second, Alborghetti sees that life itself can be a prayer; physical acts presented to God can serve as prayer when words seem to fail us. "Prayer is not always a matter of words; prayer, in its purest form is often action.

Marci's prayer partner struggled with cancer and was too weak to pray any longer - at that moment PRAYER POWER evolved as a concept, offering practical help for those who feel unable to pray and out of touch with God. Here real-life stories pair with model prayers and biblical examples to cover a range of spiritual practices, from finding prayer partners and prayerfully listening to music to discovering different forms of prayer to bring one closer to God. It's an intriguing discussion that should be a part of any spirituality collection.

A book not to be read and passed on, but one to keep close by as an on going reference.

I received the book just over a week after ordering it. It is in excellent condition, and was purchased at a very low price.
