Joann Nesser invites readers to journey into that silence where God is known in love. She speaks to the faithful, praying, serving Christian who seems to have lost all energy and desire for spiritual life. It gives the reader hope that there is light at the end of the tunnel. It encourages the person to see this as a time of spiritual deepening and an invitation from God to deeper love and a more contemplative way of prayer and life.
Written to help those who have been Christian for a time and find their prayer life is empty and dry, Nesser takes an inviting look at contemplative prayer in a way that stirs the desire for a deeper prayer life. The book includes simple teachings on prayer and gives readers a deep understanding of the dynamics of the spiritual journey. Select chapters in the book include suggestions for reflection that will help readers absorb and experience prayer rather that just reading about prayer.
"In our love relationship with God, prayer is our communication and our conversation with the One who loves us and who desires us to love in return. Prayer is so much more than making requests. It is a sharing of our spirit with the Eternal Spirit who has created us. In this relationship, as in any relationship, the partners share their deepest feelings and their most precious secrets. God desires to hear our deepest feelings and thoughts, and will share deep feelings and thoughts with us."
