A Simple Way to Pray
The Breath of Life introduces a concept of prayer that will help persons new to prayer as well as veterans of the life of prayer. The Breath Prayer is a short prayer of praise and petition that is meant to help us become aware of the presence of God. “It is a way to have on our lips what is always in our heart,” Ron explains. Ron leads the reader to discover his or her own personal and individualized breath prayer, a prayer that may be prayed at any time of the day or night. He gives historical examples of the breath prayer used in ancient writings as well as modern-day examples of how persons have utilized and been helped by this way of praying.
