Would you like to learn to pray like a medieval Christian? In Mary and the Art of Prayer, Rachel Fulton Brown traces the history of the medieval practice of praising Mary through the complex of prayers known as the Hours of the Virgin. More than just a work of comprehensive historical scholarship, the book asks readers to immerse themselves in the experience of believing in and praying to Mary. Mary and the Art of Prayer crosses the boundaries that modern scholars typically place between observation and experience, between the world of provable facts and the world of imagination, suggesting what it would have been like for medieval Christians to encounter Mary in prayer. Mary and the Art of Prayer opens with a history of the devotion of the Hours or “Little Office” of the Virgin. It then guides readers in the practice of saying this Office, including its invitatory (Ave Maria), antiphons, psalms, lessons, and prayers. The book works on several levels at once. It provides a new methodology for thinking about devotion and prayer; a new appreciation of the scope of and audience for the Hours of the Virgin; a new understanding of how Mary functions theologically and devotionally; and a new reading of sources not previously taken into account. A courageous and moving work, it will transform our ideas of what scholarship is and what it can accomplish.

Prayer is natural for human beings, a spontaneous impulse common in all people. Yet, beyond instinct, there is a kind of prayer that's conscious and articulate, that we have to be taught. There is an “art of prayer,” when faith and prayer become creative responses by which creatures made in the image and likeness of the Creator relate to him with help of the imagination. Timothy Verdon explores these essential interactions in this magnificent book. Richly illustrated, Monsignor Verdon explains that images work in believers as tools that teach them how to turn to God. Art and Prayer explores these interactions in detail, demonstrating that prayer can become a fruit of the sanctified imagination – a way of beauty and turning to God. In this eloquent, accessible, and gorgeously illustrated volume, Timothy Verdon unites his multiple vocations as art historian, theologian, and priest. With the ease of a master teacher who has lived with his material for years, he shows us not only how the faithful have been depicted in prayer, but how such depictions can inspire our own praying. Verdon should be required reading for anyone who wants to how theology can animate art and in turn by animated by it. Above all, Art and Prayer is a call to worship.Peter S. Hawkins Professor of Religion and Literature, Yale Divinity School"While Timothy Verdon's immense erudition in the European tradition of sacred art is everywhere apparent, this book is written for non-specialist readers willing to allow their practice of Christian prayer – both in liturgy and in personal devotion – to be enriched and given theological precision through art once intended for such work. My hope is surely that of Mons. Verdon himself: that this book may help to inspire both artists and their communities to create new art that is answerable to the various modes of prayer and worship, so that a book such as Verdon's could be written a generation hence with examples drawn from artworks newly commissioned for the contemporary church."Dr. John Skillen, director of the Studio for Art, Faith & History in Orvieto (Italy)

Stookey seeks to relieve the anxiety of inexperienced leaders of public prayer and the discomfort of those with and for whom they pray in this practical guide to the art of praying in public. The book has three parts. First, Stookey offers reflections on the nature of prayer, utilizing the image of a flow of energy. Second, he discusses the forms, mechanics, and vocabularies of prayer. His analysis brims with insight and practical application. Third, and most importantly, he provides concrete exercises in editing prayers. The reader is challenged to mark prayer texts and then to compare her or his own work with the author's as Stookey points out the particular issues that the exercises highlights. The book is clearly organized, economically written, and easy to use. Those who read carefully and complete the exercises will gain significant experience in crafting prayers to which the whole congregation can respond with an enthusiastic "Amen".

How long does one have to pray to be heard? It's not about how long but how... There is an art to prayer... you have to pray in a way that God listens Have you been praying for a very long time? Are there important things in your life that you want to improve? Does it seem to you that your prayers are not being heard? Do you feel that life isn't fair? Why are some prayers answered and others not? Why do good people suffer? Why do rascals thrive? Why is God unfair? Have you ever thought about these things? Have you ever wondered why somethings you ask for take a very long time to come? Have you ever wondered why weak and innocent are persecuted? Have you ever wondered why some people can get away with anything? I've been looking for the answers for a very long time. My search has not been in vain. I have discovered that God does have a system for answering prayers. Gods system is perfect and fair every time. Once we understand how it works and start using it effectively we claim our true power. Life becomes easy and fun, and we start looking forward to each day with eagerness. We start understanding that we do have control on how things work out. This art of prayer is at the base of every religion...but it has been misinterpreted in so many ways that those with logic have given up on it. But this is the age of a great Awakening and so the art of prayer is being rediscovered. Some call it the Secret. Others call it the Law of Attraction. The point is to understand that prayer is not a ritual. We are in a state of prayer all the time, and for the most part we're messing it up big time. This book will help you understand how prayer works and how to use it effectively, so that God listens. With a little bit of practice and just ten days of doing it differently, you will start feeling better and more in control, and then the evidence will start showing up, confirming to you that you're finally getting it. This is your life, and you owe it to yourself to make the most of it. Reviews and questions are welcome Much love and appreciation Zehra
