Mary writes, 'I believe that conversation, both listening to and talking with God, is as vital as breathing and that prayer is a creative expression of communication which enhances and nurtures a closer relationship with God.'
Richard Foster, bestselling author of Celebration of Discipline and founder of Renovare, has written this book for all who hunger to go deeper into prayer but don’t know where to start. Sanctuary of the Soul gently guides you along the path of meditative prayer, so that you too can know a deeper fellowship with God.
Weaving together quotes and stories from the lives of the mothers and fathers of the faith as well as powerful encounters with God from his own life, Foster describes the riches to be gained through quietening your mind and heart in order to listen to and obey God more closely. Along the way, at his clearest, most practical best, he also provides the biblical teaching and step-by-step help you need to begin to find this sanctuary of prayer yourself.
