Ascending in Hope

What are the different kinds of prayer?

I prayed for something and God didn’t grant it. Why?

Doesn’t the Bible condemn repetitious prayers like the rosary?

Why do I have to say traditional prayers in a church instead of just talking to God in my own way?

Prayer is the Christian’s source of strength and peace, a channel of grace, a medium of joy and consolation. By it we open our minds to the One who made us and loves us, to give him praise and thanks and to tell him our needs. And we also open our hearts to him, asking him for wisdom and direction in our life. But prayer doesn’t always come easily, especially when we have questions about how or why we should do it. 20 Answers: Prayer addresses some of the most common questions, giving you profitable understanding of what prayer is, strategies for praying more often in a busy day, and ways to advance in prayer toward its goal: deeper, more loving communion with God.

The 20 Answers series from Catholic Answers offers hard facts, compelling arguments, and clear explanations of the most important topics facing the Church and the world—all in a compact, easy-to-read package.

    20 Answers on Prayer

    JMJ. Even though I’ve been purchasing from Catholic Answers since the early 90s, at 70 years old now I tend to forget. I needed an answer for a question on Prayer at the same time an email came on this handy pocket size booklet. This is all part of the Spiritual Works of Mercy. St. John the Baptist pray for us.
