Moment by Moment: A Retreat in Everyday Life Paperback – August 1, 2000

This book of prayer exercises, inspired by "The Spiritual Exercises of St. Ignatius of Loyola," seeks to "occasion a conversion of heart and mind so that a person may follow Jesus with greater faith, love and freedom." Each "moment" is intended to offer an intense experience that will bring the soul closer to God. At the same time, the authors are far from narrow scholastics; every exercise is designed to offer an opportunity for deep personal reflection.
The prayer exercises are structured in terms of a specific spiritual "desire," leading to an interrogation of Scripture, as well as of the self, about the best way to attain that desire (for example, the desire to "grow in the inner freedom needed to commit my life to God" or "to hear God's call when it comes and to be willing to respond generously.") What differentiates this lovely book from so many prayer guides is its attention to the difficulty of prayer, its understanding that to pray requires discipline and structure, that ecstatic communion only follows after long, hard concentration and labor, the readying of the soul for God.

When used/read prayerfully with an open mind and heart, and with honesty before God, the reader will discover the profound and personal love of God and the call to love others as God has loved them. Reflecting on their own personal experiences, the reader can see more clearly the ways God has accompanied them throughout their life journeys.
This is a book of reflection AND action; call AND response. It can be used alone or with a guide. Can also be used with a small group of people who choose to grow in intimacy with their God. I LOVE THIS BOOK AND HIGHLY RECOMMEND IT TO EVERYONE.
I have prayed using this book for nearly 2 years now. It has been such a grace for me I could not rush through these moments. This retreat has given me a whole new perspective on life. I have learned by God's grace that yes He is with me and loves me every minute of every day.
This book has been a real consolation for me.
