2022 Catholic Media Association honorable mention in prayer: books about prayer

In prayer not only do we call out to God, but God endlessly calls out to us, enfolding us in mercy, drawing us close in love. Yet prayer can be daunting. We may not be sure where to begin or how to continue. In Prayer, Biblical Wisdom for Seeking God, Michelle Francl-Donnay explores what Scripture teaches us about prayer with insightful commentary on three key passages. The voices of the psalmist, St. Paul, and Jesus are our guides in this rich volume on one of the most essential topics of the spiritual life. Reflection questions and ideas for prayer are included.

In Prayer, Biblical Wisdom for Seeking God, she lights the ways of prayer found in the Scriptures.
