Desires of the Heart: Prayers for Growing Faith
Authors: Bill Huebsch with Leisa Anslinger
Paperback, 5.5 x 8.5 inches, 146 pages + CD.
We all long for many things. Our list many include love, money, health, success, friendship, power or fame, among others. But the deepest desire of the human heart is for God.
This book of forty-eight prayer experiences helps readers develop their relationship with God, and become aware of the many ways we encounter God in our daily lives. Each session - really, a mini-retreat - offers prayers, Scripture readings, reflections, space for journaling, and song lyrics.
Included with this book is a CD of twenty-four popular liturgical songs that are arranged for use within these prayer experiences. This added element helps create a peaceful and inspirational atmosphere that further opens the heart to the beauty and power of God's love for us.
These prayers correspond to each of the booklets in the Growing Faith Project, and can be used for individual or group prayer.
