A humble prayer
calls down fire from above, and as we learn to live a life rooted in
prayer, this heavenly fire grows into a profound awareness of the
presence of God. This in the deepest purpose of prayer, and making
this journey is essential for reaching the heights of holiness for
which we were made.
Dr. Anthony Liles,
Academic Dean at St. John's Seminary in California, shows you how to
put your whole life in conversation with the Risen Lord within the
Catholic tradition of spirituality. The wisdom of great saints and
mystics will help you discover how to surrender your pride and appeal
to God with humble trust, and how prayer addresses your deepest human
needs. Dr. Lilles then shows you how the mystery of prayer unfolds,
and how God provides heroic levels of courage and deep internal
resolve through humble and persevering devotion. You'll examine how
spiritual battles and dryness in prayer are essential to reaching
communion with God. Including the dark night of the soul.

and you will soon embark on the epic adventure that is the life of
prayer, and you'll find encouragement to desire neither the goods nor
the experiences of this world, but instead to pursue alone the Lord
and His divine plan for your life.
