Drawing from events as simple as breakfast with a five-year-old and waiting in line at the post office, Douglas shows how a loving relationship with God can be nurtured in small ways every day: ''Without my ever really intending it,'' she writes, ''my own life--as a wife and mother, daughter and friend--has taught me to see God hidden in the ordinary, to watch for God under the surface of things as a fisherman watches for fish.'' The book takes on this subject under four sections: Ways of Praying, Healing, Spiritual Companionship, and Fruitfulness.

An Eighth Day View:

Nothing is more remarkable or more beautiful than an ordinary life, quietly transformed by prayer. This is the life that Deborah Smith Douglas chronicles and invites readers into in her lovely collection of essays and poems. Drawing from events as simple as breakfast with her five-year-old daughter or waiting in line at the post office, Douglas shows how a loving relationship with God can be nurtured in small ways every day. Without my ever really intending it, she writes, my own life as a wife and mother, daughter and friend has taught me to see God hidden in the ordinary, to watch for God under the surface of things as a fisherman watches for fish.

Woven into each of these pieces, along with reflections on the author s experiences, are guidelines for readers watching for God in their own unique and ordinary lives. Divided into four sections Ways of Praying, Healing, Spiritual Companionship, and Fruitfulness The Praying Life will help Christians move from awareness of God s presence in their lives to a deep participation in God s love.
