It suggests methods of prayer that have hitherto been unknown to me. The book centers on the concept of the "Prayer of the Heart". This method is done by focusing ones attention to the area of the heart and praying short, frequent prayers. The book goes into the benefits of the prayer of the heart and how to apply the prayer to different aspects of one's life.
After reading the book and understanding the method of the Prayer of the Heart, I realized that there have been times in my own spiritual practice that unbeknownst to me, I have practiced this type of prayer. However, in reading the book and applying the directions for this type of prayer, what was once a "hit or miss" approach, has now become very focused and direct. It has enhanced my prayer life immeasurably.
I recommend this book to a person of any Christian denomination. The Orthodox church has been in existence since the time of Christ and clearly there is much any person could learn from its Saints, Fathers, practices and traditions.
Finally, I must mention the general appearance of the book. The book is written in an older font that is not as clear as some of the more modern fonts. Normally I would take a star or half star away from the rating due to the less than clear appearance of the book. However, the contents are so good and potentially life changing, that it still gets the full 5 stars.
Buy it! And learn a new way to pray.
Using this technique of connecting mind with heart for inner prayer healed me of spiritual sickness I was carrying for 20 years.
The simple spiritual practice of orthodox prayer is what my spirit was seeking. Simple mindfulness or Cognitive Behavioral therapy wasnt bring the healing of spiritual wholeness this brought me. I also recommend other Orthodox Psyschotherapy books ..extremely helpfu!
have no plans to re-issue. I was told by them that if Amazon called, they would listen: (212)-741-6900
"Pray without ceasing" (5:17)
It has been my companion for years now. I learn about this book from a friend and borrowed it numerous times, but now purchased a copy for myself. It is a must have!
