Practice turning ordinary life experiences into a conversation with God!
With all the distractions and busyness of everyday life, trying to remain connected to God can be a real challenge. Fortunately, a Carmelite monk named Brother Lawrence understood this problem and laid out a spiritual approach to living in God’s presence that is as practical today as it was almost four hundred years ago.
Since it was first published in 1691, The Practice of the Presence of God contains a collection of notes, letters, and interviews given by Brother Lawrence to his friends as a way of helping them turn ordinary daily life events into conversations with God.
Based on this timeless classic, The Practice of the Presence of God: A 40-Day Devotion guides readers on a 40-day journey through the wisdom of Brother Lawrence, related Scripture passages, and devotional thoughts that bring you into a more conversational relationship with God.
The Practice of the Presence of God: A 40-Day Devotion includes:
- Daily devotional readings with book excerpt, Scripture references, and devotional thoughts
- The complete conversations and letters from Brother Lawrence
- Additional resources including a small-group discussion guide, Spiritual Maxims, and The Life of Brother Lawrence available for free online
- Perfect for book clubs, small groups, or individual Bible study
- Available in print or e-book formats
Devote some time to examining the content of this small but powerful book that has inspired millions of Christians over centuries to develop a deeper awareness of the presence of God.
