Praying, rather than reading about prayer, is the goal of Ten Ways to Pray. Here each chapter supplies the story of one historic saint and a description of his or her approach to being with God. The bulk of the chapter explains how to work each method, how to try it if there isn’t much time, and how to adapt the practice to a group. Study questions and further resources conclude each section.
