Even after she took her holy vows, the woman known today as St. Teresa of Avila struggled to live a life guided by contemplative prayer: "my soul was as much afraid to engage in prayer without [a prayer book] as if it were having to go and fight against a host of enemies." For those also seeking to elevate their personal worship practices, this slender volume outlines a week's worth of morning and evening prayers, each day's liturgy shaped around one of seven spiritual themes (sin, humility, patience...). Each prayer sequence includes words from Teresa, scripture readings, confession, moments of silence, and multiple prayers. Whether you adopt this schedule of prayer for your daily devotion or reserve it for specific periods of the year, The St. Teresa of Avila Prayer Book is a meaningful tool for all Christians seeking to know God more deeply.
