Edward Pascil Caveabout this book: Many people today feel a great hunger for a deeper experience of God through prayer. We are no longer satisfied with merely "saying prayers"; we want to enter a more personal relationship with God himself. This desire is a rare blessing in itself, for only God can plant such a hunger within us.
A dimension of prayer which many Christians use as a step toward satisfying this hunger is the use of Scripture as a starting point for reflection and meditation. For as we listen prayerfully to God's word, we become more and more experientially aware of his loving abiding presence. Often, however, it can be difficult to know where to begin when using the Bible in prayer. The purpose of this book is to help people to pray with Scripture by offering the actual reading for an entire year of daily prayer.
The person buying the book will be given the Scripture reading for each day of one year. The passages have been selected and arranged to correspond roughly to the order of meditations in a thirty day retreat according to the Spiritual Exercises of Ignatius of Loyola. If the first week of the reading is begun in September, the reading will coincide with the liturgical feast of the year.
