Prayer. Simple word with many definitions. Prayer brings up many different images to many different people from laying prostate to kneeling to speaking in tongues. In theory we know that there are many ways to pray. However, most of us including myself get stuck in the same formula of prayer day in and day out. There is nothing wrong with formula ( I still like to do Our Father regular). The problem becomes when that formula stops bringing us into life and commune with the Divine.
Pray like a Gourmet challenges your boring prayer life. He talks about how like prayer is like food. You can be satisfied with some things for a well but there is a pantry of things you can explore. For the author these include: praising, thanking, confessing, blessing, observing, lamenting, mediating, contemplating, asking, interceding or joining. There is also ways to do prayer alone or with groups.
I have known about most of these before but this book was a nice reminder and a nice way to jumpstart passion in my prayer life. I would recommend it to most people. We can always use a fresh does of passion on our prayer life.
