Latest Lectio Divina Catholic Prayer Journal: Praying The Our Father

Praying The Our Father

Encountering God through the Ancient Tradition of Lectio Divina

The Lord’s Prayer is precious to the Church, given to us by Jesus himself. Yet it can become so familiar to us that, as we recite the words from memory, we forget to meditate on the riches of the truth it contains. Praying The Our Father is designed to help us go deeper in our prayer by providing a practical tool for praying with Holy Scripture using the ancient tradition of lectio divina. A brief introduction to this kind of prayer is followed by a journal-style guide which gives the reader opportunity to pray with carefully chosen short Scripture passages as well as inspirational quotations from the Catechism, Pope Emeritus Benedict, and the saints. This prayer journal is designed for anyone who desires to grow in prayer and draw closer to our Lord.

Praying The Our Father” is the seventh in the Lectio Divina Catholic Prayer Journal Series©. Other volumes include, “Encountering God in Holy Scripture,” “Praying The Mysteries of the Rosary,” “Praying The Stations of the Cross,” “Jesus Christ, the Word Made Flesh,” “Praying with St. Paul,” and “Praying The Apostles’ Creed.”
