Prayer: Finding Intimacy with God
Though prayer is one of the essentials of a thriving faith, we often feel as if we're talking to ourselves. Or, worse, we're talking to no one at all. How can something so vital to the faith be so elusive? Now, the mystery of prayer is made clear through the engaging teaching and cinematic artistry of the Augustine Institute in Prayer: Finding Intimacy with God.
