I received this order in two packages the second just today. The Practice of the Presence of God.

I look forward to actually reading it. The other 3 books are complete. Karen B Gifford

This book now lives on top of my Bible

I read this book and immediately ordered four copies to share with my house church. It is, in my opinion, a book that every single Christian should be reading, if not regularly then at least once.

Drawing closer

This book really puts into perspective that all we do should be from a position of loving God. There should be no difference between what we do at set prayer times and the rest of the day. Whether we work, interact with others, clean, pray, all should be done out of love for God. Wonderful and a quick read.

A Good Devotional Book

This is a series of meditations on simple actions.

A Powerful Humbling Experience

I just can't believe it. Of all the thousands of books I have read, this small book has caught my heart. Sure I could have read it in an hour but the wisdom that flows from this edition just simply cooled the hurry of my life.It is a book that I will place next to my Bible and refer to it every time I sensed that God is far away. Each section of the book stands on its own and yet such a lovely intricate meshing makes the reading more of an experience that a reading exercise.The one section that caught my spirit reads: "The Time of business, said he, does not with me differ from the time of prayer; and in the noise and clutter of my kitchen (he was a cook) while several persons are calling at the same time for different things, I possess God in as great a tranquility as if I were upon my knees at the Blessed Sacrament".In another section he speaks of the opportunities to be in HIS prsence when we are stricken with an ailment.Such statements are throughout the book which will cause one to stop and meditate. I will be buying copies to give to those in my circle that hunger for a closer walk and relationship with God over anything and anyone in their lives.

absolutely essential reading

by practicing His presence, by trying to constantly connect/converse with God, laubach and brother lawrence discover what the christian life is all about- knowing God personally and resting in what we find. reading about their trek toward the heart of God led me to reexamine mine. after reading it, i was convinced that, like brother lawrence, i would be able to connect with God at least once a minute. unfortunately, i was amazingly far from my goal. yet, the more i practice, the closer i get. as i get closer, i know God better, and the happiness, peace, and effectiveness in my life and ministry that have resulted are amazing. in turn, i have learned that i don't know God nearly as well as i thought; and, if i simply spend more time with him in my thoughts, i will know him better and flourish because of it.

Practicing the Presence of God

This book is meaty, easy and short. Brother Lawrence showed me how to live in the face of God with joy in everyday tasks. Drudgery become joy when viewed with his eyes and with God's eyes. Loved this book, it is one I will never, never forget, and will always treasure.

Do you want a closer relationship with God? Start here.

You have probably heard of The Practice of the Presence of God, a book so popular that it has been continuously in print for the past 300 years. I suspect, however, that more people buy it than actually read it. This version has been edited into modern language, to make it easier to read, and has been paired with the letters of Frank Laubach, a missionary, writer, and friend of God, who died in 1970. The Laubach letters gripped my heart with a sense of hope, and the possibility that I too could have a relationship with God, where I was continually aware of His presence. Brother Lawrence's letters are powerful, but are also more difficult to hold on to, especially the sections about suffering. I expect that my understanding will increase as I re-read them in the future.
