An accessible, adult, catholic prayer book which can become the well-used friend of the reader -- it can be kept and prayed with. This is not another book for the shelf but to accompany us in our journey. We can add our own comments in the margins, highlight a prayer we will use regularly, add extra ribbons and use the blank pages at the back of the book to supplement this volume with other prayers that we come across which we will find useful. We can make this our working journal of prayer as we lift up our hearts, day by day, to God. When we pray we learn to pray; as we pray we enter into that rich experience of prayer which George Herbert describes in his poem at the front of this book.
