The revered teacher and bestselling author of such classic Christian works as Mere Christianity and The Screwtape Letters, C. S. Lewis here offers wisdom and lessons that illuminate our private dialogue with God—prayer—in this collection drawn from the breadth of his writings. C. S. Lewis’s insights on Christianity and his reflections on Christian life continue to guide us more than fifty years after his death. How to Pray showcases Lewis’s enduring wisdom on prayer and its place in our daily lives. Cultivated from his many essays, articles, and letters, as well as his classic works, How to Pray provides practical wisdom and instruction to help readers nurture their spiritual beliefs and embrace prayer in all its forms. While many people would like to speak to God, they often don’t know how to begin. Lewis guides them through the practice, illuminating the significance of prayer and why it is central to faith. A welcome addition to the C. S. Lewis canon, How to Pray offers a deeper understanding of our personal tradition of prayer, our faith, and what is means to be a Christian.

In this deeply thoughtful, innovative work longtime college and high school teacher draws on his many years' experience in leading prayer to fashion a different kind of prayer took. For it he has selected various scriptural passages and applied them to the four seasons of the calendar year. Based loosely on an Ignatian model of meditation, he provides the reader with a brief introduction before presenting a passage from Scripture and a reflection to follow. The introduction guides us into the world of scripture and the reflection helps us to ponder the relevance of the passage in our own lives. The author embraces a current practical view of spirituality that is meant to be evocative of spiritual issues. He will make you think as he helps you pray.

This collection of gem-like reflections distills Jager's most popular messages along with responses from his hearers. Jager draws on a variety of sources from traditional Christian mystics to contemporary Zen masters.
Author: Willigis Jäger
Willigis Jager believes all of us are familiar with mystical experiences - any time we've found ourselves saying, "I'm not sure what this means, but I know it happened to me." Jager even insists that spirit is more "real" than matter - that it is the primordial stuff from which the visible world is made. For him, mysticism is simply the best way to experience the image of God in ourselves & the handiwork of God in all creatures. This collection of gem-like reflections distills Jager's most popular messages along with responses from his hearers. Jager draws on a variety of sources from traditional Christian mystics to contemporary Zen masters. He describes the basic routes people travel on their mystical quests, including controlled breathing, quiet sitting, reciting mantras & rosaries - methods that lead to states of "non-thinking" that may produce lucid, even life-transforming insights. Jager also surveys the great Christian mystics including John Cassian & the Desert Fathers, Meister Eckhart, St. John of the Cross, & Madame Guyon, along with lesser-known mystics persecuted by institutional church leaders. Jager provides guidance in learning how to pray contemplatively - prayer that brings one into the presence of God rather than the more conventional one-way conversations with God. The healing power of mysticism is compared with the techniques of psychoanalysis, with a particularly insightful approach to the demonic & its relation to depression. One theme shines through all Jager's reflections: the invitation of the cosmic Christ to truly become his brothers & sisters - sons & daughters of God, not just adoring fans.
