Publisher's Summary

Anyone who prays or has tried to pray and given up in discouragement knows praying, really praying, is not easy. Praying consistently seems almost impossible. Too often and too easily, prayer becomes a burden: one more item on an already overcrowded to-do list. 

Failing to pray becomes a source of guilt and stress as we must once again admit our inconstancy and procrastination to our father confessor. Yet, our Lord said, "Come to me, all of you who are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. My burden is easy and my yoke is light." (Matt. 11:30) 

The purpose of this audiobook, then, is not to add to the burden, but to ease it by distilling the advice and experience of those who pray.

Easy to listen and read...

For the first time a book on prayer that is really Orthodox yet has the down home, practical and realistic info on prayer. It addresses of those things that stop us from prayer yet none of us admit that we do. Thank you for writing this Joseph Letendre!

Perfectly short, perfectly essential

I like to listen to books lately while I clean house or drive by myself. I have listened to this at least four times in the last couple months I have had it. I imagine I will again as it is a great instructional on something that can feel too BIG at times to even accomplish. Mr. Letendre is gracious and inspiring in his paying forward to the rest of us some sage advice on prayer.

Catholic

These are Catholic teachings. This is not recommended for those who wish to follow the scriptures without the beast Catholic system attempting to dominating the true Spirit of Yahweh.
