Prayer is a word we take for granted, but should we really do so? What do we mean by prayer? What does the word mean in the Christian context? This book addresses such questions, showing how the hunger for prayer can be satisfied.
-Publisher



Prayer is a word we take for granted but what do we mean by prayer? Almost always when we talk about prayer we refer to something we DO. But Burrows argues that our Christian knowledge assures us that prayer is essentially what God DOES.

And what God is doing for us is giving us the Divine Self in love. This is the vision of a contemplative nun who contradicts the heresy of so much modern spiritual writing. The growing fascination in the contemplative and monastic life is evidence of the profound appeal of this approach.

For this there is a real hunger. Ultimately, we live for God and not for ourselves.
