Best selling author William Byron offers here an appealing sequel to his popular A Book of Quiet Prayer. Praying With and For Others broadens the concept of personal prayer to a new level to include praying with and for others, particularly for worldwide peace.
"We cannot go to God alone," he writes. "Nor should we forget, when facing God, that there are persons and problems out there in need of our prayers, and that praying with, not simply for, but with others, extends our reach and raises our silent or vocal prayers to higher levels of effectiveness."
The book grows out of the authors experience as a priest and pastor, preacher and spiritual guide, in helping others open up to God. Readers will appreciate Byrons poignant, effective, and very personal approach to prayer. In addition, they will welcome the suggestions to facilitate faith sharing and group prayer that he offers.
William J. Byron SJ, former president of the Catholic University of America and the University of Scranton, is a Jesuit priest, educator, economist and author. He lives in the USA.
