Prayer has to begin where you are, but sometimes, especially in difficult times, it can be a challenge to understand where you are or how to get “there,” “there” being that place where conversation can begin and your relationship with God flourish. Helen Lambin offers personal experiences, wisdom from a variety of religious traditions, and prayers to help you take the leap of faith. Each of Lambin’s original prayers is followed by a passage from The Message: Catholic/Ecumenical Edition. And each chapter has room for you to write your own prayers and to note your favorite Scripture passages. Themes include: exhaustion, loneliness, frustration, impatience, regret, depression, loss, disappointment, and a good helping of hope.
