A thoughtful exploration of the history and vitality of traditional Catholic prayers. Praying people have long relied on meditative or extemporaneous prayer to express their feelings and yearnings to God. Traditional prayer, often considered rote, tends to be neglected. In the Words We Pray, author Amy Welborn offers an insightful exploration into eighteen traditional prayers and the vital role they play in the spiritual life. This enchanting prayer book includes the history and traditional use of each prayer as well as personal anecdotes to show why the body of Catholics traditional prayers is "a treasure worth rediscovering." "When we explore the history of how these prayers were composed and used," we hook into those original impulses we still share." From the psalms to traditional Martin prayers to the Lord's Prayer to Amen, the prayers explored in The Words We Pray are gifts from the past that can be used to great benefit today.
