Praise for Practicing Prayer
"Don’t we all need help with our daily prayer? I do. Almost like a book on learning a new language, Father Goussetis provides each day with a Purpose, Wisdom of the Ages, Exercise and Journal Section. We are all neophytes with prayer, that is, relating to Almighty God in a personal way. Truth be told, we have much to learn about the language of love, the language of God. Practicing Prayer is an excellent guide to formatting our approach to our personal daily prayer life. This book is not for the fainthearted. It is For those who want to be more disciplined, loving and committed in their relationship with a loving God. I highly recommend Practicing Prayer for serious old-timers and new-timers." -Albert Rossi, PhD
