Synopsis

Too often we think of prayer as a nut that needs to be cracked. For countless people, prayer is a problem to be solved. So they try a prayer or a meditation technique, abandon it, then try another prayer method and soon abandon it, too. We read, listen to lectures, watch videos, and attend retreats on prayer. Maybe, we think, a visiting guru can help solve the problem of prayer. But prayer is not a problem. Prayer is a mystery, and by no means are these the same thing. from the IntroductionThis may be the last book about prayer you ever read. If you puzzle over what prayer is, and means and does, you probably are thinking too much and praying too little to understand the mystery of prayer.I recommend Prayer for People Who Think Too Much. . . .A great step in helping to realize how similar we all are in our attempts to find intimacy with God.Fr.
