God wants us to share our lives and our hearts with him. In this updated and expanded edition of a spiritual classic, Christian Brother Joseph Schmidt gently leads us to recognize that honest reflection before God on the ordinary experiences of our lives is the very means of our spiritual growth. As we speak to God about our personal story, we can explore the significance of our unrest, our joys, our fears, and our hopes. Then the Holy Spirit will lead us to self-knowledge and the freedom to accept and appreciate ourselves and our lives as they are. This book goes beyond any specific way of praying to the very heart of prayer: intimacy with God.
- Valuable for any Christian, no matter where they are in their faith journey.
- Helps readers view distractions in prayer as opportunities to draw closer to God.
- Makes a thoughtful gift.

Transformative, illuminating, and integrative, "Praying Our Experiencing" guides the reader towards greater intimacy with God, self and others. When practiced, praying our experiences integrates formal and informal prayer into a continuous life of pragmatic loving devotion to the way of Christ--doing less harm, doing good, and staying in love with God, self, others, and the cosmos.

Great book! Really helped me to know that there are many ways to pray and not to let anything stand between myself and God
