Every Christian needs spiritual direction," writes Peter Frick. Regular prayer and meditation help to shape a healthy Christian life. While noting that Dietrich Bonhoeffer was more than a spiritual mentor, Frick utilizes his words to shape reflections that will guide readers deeper into the heart of meditation. Bonhoeffers prayers read like a contemporary psalter: they are praise, lament, wisdom. In these pages, readers are invited to contemplate silence, community, solitude, truth, grace, sin, worldliness, and eternity, and are encouraged to open their hearts to meditation. Peter Frick is associate professor and academic dean at St. Paul's College. He teaches a variety of subjects, including courses in Western religions, theology, and biblical studies. Frick recently published A Handbook of New Testament Greek Grammar (2007) and editedBonhoeffer's Intellectual Formation (2008). Frick is a member of the international Bonhoeffer Society and a member of the editorial board responsible for the publication of the new standard edition of the Bonhoeffer works. His main interest lies in the intersection of philosophy and theology, both in ancient and modern times. "

On the path to spiritual understanding, no practice is more important in terms of spiritual transformation than the practices of meditation and prayer. And yet, as in many areas of spiritual discipline, it is as important to know why we pray and meditate as it is to know how. This book answers some common but important questions relating to both the how and the why of these two disciplines. Part I lays the foundation necessary for a positive experience of meditation and prayer. Parts II and III explain the theory and practice of meditation and prayer and give steps for the practice. Part IV offers suggestions on the practical applications of prayer in the areas of healing, prosperity and relationships. Sprinkled liberally with helpful affirmations, inspiring quotation and the author's own wise insights, this book is more than a "how-to." It is a "why-to" that will be a valued companion to anyone seeking a deeper spiritual life through the practices of meditation and prayer.

2011 Reprint of 1947 Edition. Full facsimile of the original edition, not reproduced with Optical Recognition Software. Joel Goldsmith was a Christian spiritual healer in the 20th century who repeatedly taught about the importance of prayer and meditation. Goldsmith explains that God is within us; we need merely try to make contact. If we believed that the "kingdom of God is within us," he says, "we should be willing to leave the world for a season, until such time as we could reach, touch, and respond to the Father within." This short pamphlet outlines Goldsmith's understanding of mediation and prayer.

In this booklet, we will meditate a little on prayer, and try to learn a few things about it from the Word of God. The Word of God is the foundation on which we build. Prayer keeps the soul in touch with the power by which alone we build a right. Mere Bible knowledge may make one heady and doctrinal. Prayer alone, if unguided by Scripture, tends toward fanaticism; but the Word and prayer together give a good, firm base on which to develop a sturdy Christian character.

The Meditation Prayer on Mary Immaculate is one of Padre Pio’s few published writings, penned before he was forbidden by the Church to publish or to engage in correspondence—this for fear a cult would arise around him. Here we encounter a profound spiritual penetration into the mystery of Mary’s unique and sublime role in our salvation. Though brief, it can be read over and over with great benefit since it is-–just as the title suggests—both a meditation and a prayer on the meaning of Mary. This booklet also contains a brief sketch of Padre Pio’s life and numerous edifying pictures of this saintly stigmatist.

The Science of Meditation, Yoga, and Prayer" explores and explains the various, scientific health benefits of yoga and meditation, it merges eastern practices of well-being with western science. Scientific research demonstrates that yoga is a superior form of exercise for overall well-being and combatant of stress. Everyone experiences stress daily, and chronic stress increases oxidative stress in the human body, which is related to many illnesses including heart attacks and strokes. Yoga and meditation are some of the most effective ways to relieve such stress. Scientific research has shown that sometimes prayer can be effective in saving the life of a critically ill patient when all medical options are exhausted. Currently, some scientists attempt to explain healing power of prayer and distant healing which cannot be explained from known theories of medical science by using quantum entanglement theory. Throughout the book Dr. Dasgupta has cited original peer reviewed publications in medical journals to convince readers regarding many health benefits of yoga and meditation as well as potential power of prayer. "This provocative and thought provoking book is an excellent resource for the medical professional or lay person seeking a deeper understanding of spiritual practices from a scientific perspective.

‘Keith Ward . . . makes complex matters readily accessible.’ Rowan Williams At the heart of Christian faith lies a vision of Christ present at the beginning of creation, in the crucified and risen Jesus, and at the end of all things. This vision retains its ancient power and gains new depth as it is reshaped in the light of our advanced understanding of a vast and evolving cosmos. To help us form a truly contemporary Christian spirituality, Keith Ward, writing in our own time and place (rather than the fourteenth century of Julian of Norwich or the twentieth of Thomas Merton), offers a set of reflections on what he believes to be the unique and life-transforming revelation of God in the person of Jesus Christ. And as we explore the spiritual truths relating to this mystery expressed in the Gospels, meditation leads naturally to prayer.
