By Fr. Jacques Philippe

Many people today are thirsty for God and feel a desire for an intense, personal prayer life that is deep and ongoing. But they encounter obstacles that prevent them from following the path seriously, and especially from persevering on it. Time for God was written with these desires and difficulties in mind.

In Time for God, author Fr. Jacques Philippe mainly concentrates on mental prayer: prayer that consists of facing God in solitude and silence for a time in order to enter into intimate, loving communion with him. Practicing this kind of prayer regularly is considered by all spiritual masters to be an indispensable path that gives access to genuine Christian life—a path to knowing and loving God that empowers us to respond to his call to holiness addressed to each individual.

Fr. Philippe draws on years of experience as a spiritual guide to illuminate the fundamental principles of mental prayer and describes some common mistakes and misconceptions that can lead it astray. With simplicity and clarity he explains the foundational principles for a healthy prayer life and gives advice for overcoming the various obstacles that arise when one sets off on the path of interior prayer.

Time for God has become an international bestseller in French and Spanish.
Explains that a complete and fulfilled life is much more assured when we stop trying to chart our own course, when we realize that we are essentially creatures called by God. A masterfully simple and useful book on prayer, written by an experienced retreat leader, counselor, and lecturer. Discusses how listening can be the key to encountering God in a fresh way in our lives.

Mustard Seeds : Daily Thoughts to G Way of Trust and Love, The: A Retreat Guided by St. Therese of Lisieux Real Mercy: Mary, Forgiveness, Trust
Kelly, Matthew

A book of brief passages for each day of the year to help you think, reflect, ponder, and pray. This book will help you to see the person you are and the person you can become. Open your heart and mind, and your life will change gracefully.
By Fr. Jacques Philippe

St. Thérèse of Lisieux sought a new way to Heaven: “a little way that is quite straight, quite short: a completely new little way.” Blessed with personal limitations that might have discouraged another, Thérèse believed God would not have given her a desire for holiness if He did not intend for her to achieve it. She learned to humbly accept herself as she was and trust completely in God’s love.

First given as a retreat by renowned author Fr. Jacques Philippe, The Way of Trust and Love navigates excerpts of St. Thérèse’s writings phrase by phrase, extracting powerful, resonating insights. To Thérèse, the journey seemed “little” as she traveled it. One hundred and fifteen years after her death, the message of the young saint and Doctor of the Church has traveled around the world inspiring millions. With this newly translated study of her spirituality, many today will rediscover—or find for the first time—the relevance of “the little way,” in all seasons of life.

Fr. Jacques Philippe is well-known for his books on prayer and spirituality. A member of the Community of the Beatitudes, he regularly preaches retreats in France and abroad. He also spends much of his time giving spiritual direction and working for the development of the Community in Asia and Oceania where he travels frequently.
By Jacques Philippe

In Real Mercy Fr. Jacques Philippe turns his focus on mercy in this book that developed from talks given on the first three days of the Year of Mercy beginning Dec. 8, 2015.

On that feast day of the Immaculate Conception, he explored how Mary, the Mother of Jesus, is an exemplar of mercy to the Church and the entire world. In a discreet but vital way she dispenses graces and favors with the compassion of a mother. His second essay on forgiveness in families hits home with everyone. No one has escaped the ill feeling and bitterness caused by strife and misunderstanding within the family, and yet the same family is intended to be the path for both earthly and eternal happiness. The author brings to light vivid examples of how lack of forgiveness causes severe damage while forgiveness heals and restores broken relationships. Finally, he uses the writings of St. Therese of Lisieux to show how trust in God’s mercy leads to extraordinary supernatural effects in one’s life and in the lives of those one touches.

Genesee Diary, The: Report From A Trappist Monastery Stumbling Blocks or Stepping Stones: Spiritual Answers to Psychological Questions Prayer: The Great Conversation - Straight Answers to Tough Questions about Prayer
From the early weeks of his seven-month stay at the Abbey of the Genesee in upstate New York to the final days of Advent, when he finds a new sense of calm expectation, Nouwen never loses his critical honesty. Insightful, compassionate, often humorous, always realistic, this book is both an inspiration and a challenge to those who are in search of themselves. Therapeutic meditations that show how human weakness can be changed by grace, prayer, insight and choice into stepping stones on the road to God. By Peter Kreeft

In his typical lucid and original style, the popular spiritual writer Peter Kreeft explores many aspects and questions about prayer, the center of our spiritual lives. In a series of imaginative dialogues (like prayer itself), Kreeft shows how prayer can be an exciting adventure, an inexhaustible joy, a conversation with God--the source of wisdom and strength.

Written in a practical, yet inspirational manner, this book addresses important areas like: finding the time to pray, praying when you don't "feel like it," using the prayer book God wrote, how to overcome sin through contemplation, and how to see God everywhere. Kreeft communicates a vision for prayer that becomes a profound conversation with the God who created, redeemed and sustains us--a conversation that is the most important experience in human life.

Prayer: The Great Conversation will benefit anyone who finds it hard to pray or to read books about prayer. Kreeft's stimulating insights and ecumenical, "mere Christianity" approach make this a unique book about prayer that should appeal to Christians of all denominations.

"Written in engaging dialogue form, Prayer the Great Conversation by Peter Kreeft takes you right along with all your doubts and hesitations into the place of freedom, love, beauty, and fulfillment, even in the midst of suffering, where God has always wanted you to be."
—Dr. Ronda Chervin, Author, Love of Wisdom

"Good books on prayer magnify God and leave you wanting to pray more than you do. I cannot imagine any Christian failing to find that this book of basic wisdom about prayer is a good book--indeed, a very good book."
—Dr. James I. Packer, Regent College

By Peter Kreeft

Kreeft uses Scripture to provide God's answers to the most common and important questions young people ask about the deeper meaning of life, their own identity, overcoming failure and temptation, the mystery of God's love, and much more. But these are questions asked not just by teens - they are the same questions adults often ask, and God's answers, as found in the Bible, respond to the deepest needs of people of all ages.
Groeschel, Benedict By Fr. Jacques Philippe

"What the world most needs today is prayer. It is prayer that will give birth to all the renewals, healings, deep and fruitful transformations we all want for society today.... I am more and more convinced that everything comes from prayer and that, among the calls of the Spirit, this is the first and most urgent one we should respond to."

Many have already benefited from Fr. Jacques’ best-selling book on prayer, Time for God. In Thirsting for Prayer Fr. Jacques revisits some of the themes covered in that book and develops new insights that are both profound and practical. These reflections guide us with simplicity on the path to intimacy with God, helping us to develop an actual taste for personal prayer. This "school of prayer" opens us up to the encounter with God that transforms us from within.
