Life as a Prayer: Devotions to Inspire, Invitations to Be Still. Hope Lyda

Our rating: 5 of 5 stars

We were attracted to this second-time published piece simply because of the title. Prayer just happens to coincide with current studies (second year, graduate school - Theology). In fact, earlier today we were reading about all of the different types of prayers and there are plenty.

The title of the book is just perfect is the breath prayer was the first of our topics to read today. This is the basic prayer and its intention is taking your heart to God, with a focus on simplicity. Perfect beginning!

Lyda goes into the gifts from God, as they pertain to our prayer life.
Life as a Prayer: Devotions to Inspire, Invitations to Be Still. Hope Lyda
Life as a Prayer is well-organized, thoughtful and offers inquiries to make the reader think. This is not simply a list of prayers to mutter, for the sake of praying. No.

Quotes:

Create a life that draws out your best and stirs a heart of faith in others.

Every moment is an invitation to experience God.

Going nowhere, so to speak, is forward motion when prayer is deepened and the soul's receptivity is quickened through devoted attention.

Today matters because it is a prayer.
