Awakening to PrayerAwakening to Prayer
Clare Wagner, OP

God calls you to live, and to live abundantly. But you can never be fully alive if you are not fully awake to God. This is the challenge Clare Wagner sets out in Awakening to Prayer: A Woman’s Perspective: to be completely aware of God’s presence in your day-to-day life. As you rush from one task to the next, one appointment to another, you may not stop to recognize the countless ways the Sacred reveals itself. Wagner invites you to slow down, take a deep breath and begin to notice and contemplate all the ways God chooses to communicate with you.
