This little book How to Pray by David Torkington, was published by Our Sunday Visitor. It was written for those who are prepared to restructure their daily lives to make time for the prayer where they can be transformed by the love that only God can give.
How to pray has been created by David Torkington who is also the narrator. The music, Jesu Joy of Man’s Desiring (Bach), is played by Catholic concert pianist, Vincent Billington. How to Pray was produced and edited by Bobbie Torkington
“Although people go on crying out for solutions, they become angry when they are told that the restoration of society must come from within and not from without.”
Schumacher, Small Is Beautiful
Prayer is the place where we freely choose to receive God’s love despite the unwanted thoughts, fantasies, and daydreams that try to distract us from receiving it. It is by daily trying to raise the mind and heart to God in prayer, by giving our time to be there, and then our energy to keep trying to turn to him, that God gives us the only love that can transform us into the image and likeness of Jesus.
