    Obviously the author understood a deeper prayer that what she writes about. In this little book she is simply trying to make the reader aware of different aspects of prayer and only "hints" at the depth that is possible. She has some very interesting thoughts on suffering which readers can really get some great insight on yet another aspect of prayer. This is a great book for anyone who wants to understand more about prayer, but it is not intended to actually go into the practice of prayer or even much more than touching on what might be possible in prayer. Yet no matter how advanced we might think we are in prayer this book has something to offer us.She also talks about self abandonment and there is a good book on this by Fr. J. P. deCaussade, SJ entitled "Self-Abandonment to Divine Providence" and goes into much depth. The book with his letters is the best one. And she touches on Prayer of Heart also. A book that goes into details on this prayer is by George A. Maloney entitled "Prayer of the Heart."Use this book as a starting spot but don't stop with it.

    good short thoughts on praying. some very valuable, some just ok if not naive in their use of scripture yet holding it without study but only devotionally. yes, I understand the difference and many points, particularly early in the book, are extremely good. later, it's as if she's trying to defend the approach of those using "reason." format if this kindle version could use updating to make it more readable.

    PrayVery well written and a lot of information about Prayers. Very interesting and knowledgeable writing. Back up with scriptures to aid us. I only had one minor problem some of the words were something I didn't know. I did learn a lot and would recommend it to anyone who wants to learn more on the method of prayers.

    If you are interested in the subject this is a source book. It starts out great and is on a roll until half way in where it strays into peripheral subjects that didn't engage me as well as the first part. Having said that the first part is essential reading, well worth the read.
