This new edition of Edward Hays’s pioneering book on prayer (over 40,000 copies sold) stands apart in a crowded field of book on how to pray with its unique interpretation of the biblical command to “pray always”—a call to pray creatively, at all times, and in every circumstance. Featuring a new introduction and beautifully designed text for reflective reading and prayer, Pray All Ways stresses God’s gift of our senses. Learn how to pray with your eyes and noses, your taste buds and hunger pains, and your hands and feet. Each of the fifteen chapters features ways to pray as well as the author’s original, creative, and soul-stirring prayers. Hays invites readers—whether they are on the go or at rest, awake or asleep—to celebrate the Creator by enjoying and sharing God’s gift of prayer.
Father Edward M. Hays is the author of more than thirty books on contemporary spirituality. He was the co-founder and moving spirit of Forest of Peace Publishing and founding director of Shantivanam, a Midwest center for contemplative prayer.
