Reviews - What do customers think about At Prayer With the Saints?
A Great Source For Contemplation Feb 5, 2001
When I began to participate in Eucharistic Adoration at my parish, I purchased this book knowing that the prayers of the saints to Our Lord would keep my company when alone at the Church at 1:00 a.m.
I'm glad I purchased the book. It includes prayers of adoration, petition, sorrow and thanksgiving. The prayers reflect the deep love the saints have for God. It is comforting to know that these men and women of God thought many of the same thoughts and struggled with many of the same problems that we suffer.
The Apostle James wrote in his epistle that the "prayer of a righteous man availeth much." This is quite true, and it also doesn't hurt to pray the same prayers that the righteous man has sent to Our Lord!
This book has another practical use. It could easily be used as a daily devotional. This book does not require that you pick it up and read it all the way through. Enjoy it piecemeal. There is a lot of wisdom and love of God in this book. Pick it up and spend some time at prayer with the saints.
Practical Prayers from Living Saints Jun 6, 2000
Categorized into four specific areas of prayer - sorrow, adoration, petition, and thanksgiving, the author has compiled an excellent selection of prayers of living saints. He also has been able to make them practical in their application to modern day lives. These are not the prayers of individuals who are living in a different universe but men and women who are dealing with daily aspirations, struggles, and joys. This book should be on anyone's list of books about the saints.
