#59 – The Divine Hours by Phyllis Tickle (100 Favorite Books)


I will admit I am a pretty cruddy prayer.  I have long desired to take time each day to pray and have often struggled.  Reading books? No problem.  Sitting in some sort of silence and reflection?  My mind wanders.

This is why I am grateful I discovered the ancient practice of Fixed-Hour Prayer, and along with that, using prayer books.  I can slowly read some prayers, Psalms and scripture.  The Divine Hours by Phyllis Tickle is my favorite prayer book as it includes morning, midday, evening and nighttime prayers.  I’d love to say I take the time to pray at these times each day, but I don’t.  That said, having these books around has helped me become a better person of prayer.  If you want to pray more, it might be worth checking out.
