"God is everywhere, always, and we can communicate with Him, everywhere, always," from Chapter Five. Is prayer possible? Does it make any difference? Does God hear and answer? How do we pray? Why? In this classic work on the spiritual life, Ralph Martin gives readers the tools for entering more fully into a fruitful relationship with God. Prayer is a gift, not a burden. Through it the Holy Spirit draws us into the Trinity, satisfying the hunger for God that lies within every human heart. "Ralph Martin has been charting the landscape of Catholic renewal for more than two decades. This is a wonderfully readable and enriching, addition to Ralph's reflections on what it means to live as a Christian in a complicated world." -Most Reverend Charles J. Chaput, Archbishop of Denver
