Prayer : the Hidden Fire
A Practical & Personal Approach to Awakening A Greater Intimacy With GodBook - 1998
The practice of prayer is shared by an overwhelming majority across diverse beliefs and backgrounds. But with the ongoing decline in the membership of institutional religion, it's apparent that many people don't go to church to pray. Many of us now turn to literature for spiritual guidance. Prayer: The Hidden Fire is a truly down-to-earth, simple yet honest book that will help you discover what prayer means to you. Tom Harpur encourages us to go beyond childhood notions of prayer and explore our deep yearning to "be heard." He includes suggestions to help both the fully initiated and the bewildered novice experience more practically and deeply the spiritual benefits of prayer. Readers are invited to view prayer as an intimate conversation with a personal God, using the same language as they would use with a lover or best friend. Along the way, Tom Harpur shares experiences from his own spiritual journey, and gives readers his most personal work to date.
