How To Pray Like Jesus and the Saints

Do you ever feel lukewarm or intimidated in your prayer life? This wonderful book can help fix that! It is as uplifting as it is accessible. Father Alfred McBride writes in a straightforward style, and includes a great deal of useful, inspiring information in this work. He gives us some great commentary on prayer, as well as thoughts from various Saints on how to pray. Topics include:

  • Insights on The Our Father (and Our Lord’s prayer life during his earthly ministry)
  • The Psalms (what he calls “God’s Prayer Book’)
  • Advice from such towering figures in our faith as St. Augustine, St. Catherine of Siena, St. Ignatius , St. Francis de Sales, St. Teresa of Avila, and St. Therese of Lisieux (the Little Flower”); (Father has also thoughtfully provided biographical information on them so you can get to know them a little better!)
  • Praying with Mary in the “Magnificat”

In addition, this book has questions for further reflection at the end of each chapter, and additional quotes from various saints for contemplation. It even includes some stained glass pictures. And what’s nice about this little volume is that you can use it on your own or in a study group! St. Anslem invites us here to “make a little time for God and rest awhile in Him.” This book can help you do just that! 138 pp. Paperback.
