Prayer is a conversation with God, a divine and holy experience that all Christians are called too.  In Listening to the Heartbeat of God Fr. Peter Preble presents a series of talks given on the topic of prayer in the Orthodox Christian Tradition.  Woven together with the monastic and Celtic traditions of Spirituality this book is designed as a beginners guide to prayer and the start of a deeper relationship between the creator and the creation.

Fr. Peter offers good words of reflection on several important themes of Lent: prayer, readings, spiritual parenthood. These are based on the sixth Chapter of the Gospel of St. Matthew. As Fr. Peter says, prayer is an essential part of the life of an Orthodox Christian and of every human being. Everyone needs to learn to pray and to include all human kind in this work. But during Great Lent, our prayer has a special meaning and it should be accompanied by spiritual readings and reflections. Since not every person is initiated to the practice of prayer, especially the Jesus Prayer, it comes the necessity of having a spiritual father or mother. And here we enter the large perspective of the Orthodox Spirituality of spiritual growing in communion with God and the fellow men under the guidance of an experienced person. This booklet is a wonderful opportunity to discover and understand these meanings.

“Powered by the strong ancient traditions of both Celtic and Eastern Orthodox spirituality, Fr. Peter guides us through the filtering out of the static of our modern busy lives to indeed listen to the heartbeat of God.” Fr. Gregory Christakos, Pastor, Sts.
