About the Book

Prayer is a multi-faceted reality; as a consequence, books on prayer tend to fall into either of two categories: There are those which deal primarily with the technical aspects of prayer, for all purposes following the format of text book. On the other hand, there is a second category of books which deals primarily with the nitty-gritty of the prayer experience. The first approach at times tends to overly reduce the approach to a classroom experience, whereas the second approach runs the risk of leaving the reader outside the uniqueness of the experience in question.
In this regard: “Lord Teach us to Pray! Reflections on Prayer” by Fr. Dominic Kaniyantharayil sdb is a welcome addition to the books on the spirituality of Prayer. The author manages to adopt and integrate a healthy creative balance between the structural dimensions of prayer – which tell us what prayer is all about; and, on the other hand, the experiential core of prayer – which helps us resonate with the concreteness of the prayer reality in the here and now. And what I would consider, as it were, the “icing on the cake” are the “parables of prayer”, freely interspersed by the author, which evoke the experience of and facilitate the encounter with the God of love. A book well worth reading.
