Reviews - What do customers think about St. Clare Prayer Book: Listening for God's Leading?
Grounded in scripture Nov 14, 2008
This book is subtitled "Listening for God's Leading." I have found it to be an excellent tool for just that. It is organized into seven days, with prayer times in the morning and the evening. The prayer times are themselves organized with scripture and silence -- perfect for discernment. The scriptures have led me to be honest before God, even when I did not want to be.
I highly recommend this book as a simple tool to help start you or keep you on the path of this rich spiritual discipline.St. Clare Prayer Book: Listening for God's Leading

I took this book with me when I went to Assisi in May. I enjoyed praying with it each day - morning and evening. It supported the other contemplative times that I spent with Clare of Assisi.
