Learning to Pray: How We Find Heaven on Earth
by Wayne Muller —
Faced with outer turmoil, people of all faiths and traditions share a deep longing for inner please, purpose and protection and Muller provides a simple step-by-step approach for all who seek the oasis of prayer.
He touches on many topics, including the community of all who pray, the meaning of God’s will, how to listen for guidance, the difficult process of forgiveness and our confrontation with evil.
Above all, he shows how prayer can lead to “heaven on earth” even in the midst of daily life.
Each chapter ends with simple rituals and meditations that will help strengthen relationships with loved ones as well as with the divine, discover how to savor the gifts in every moment, realize we are never alone, learn the art of forgiveness, to give thanks for what we have as well as what is needed, and to invite an inner peace that helps to build a lasting peace in the world.
