There can be only one starting point for developing a prayer life that is satisfying, fulfilling, challenging and exciting. That starting place is where we actually are, at this moment. We cannot start from where we would like to be, or where we think we should be. If we try to do that we will undoubtedly enter into a life of illusion and distortion, of self-deception and departure from reality.
With these practical words, Fr Kieran Hynes begins this book on prayer. He talks about prayer itself, about different ways of praying, about different methods and traditions of prayer, about how to begin a prayer life.
Sometimes amusing, sometimes almost poetic, but always practical, Pray As You Can will appeal to people who are just starting on a prayer life - our greatest adventure, as Fr Hynes describes it - and to those who already have a deep relationship with Christ.
