Speaking to God is a helpful resource for daily prayer. It offers strength and inspiration through prayers that guide conversation with God and find in Him the love, wisdom, and peace needed in all of life’s experiences. The ebook edition enhances the use of the prayers by making them accessible through tablets and smart phones. Also, each prayer is linked to the table of contents so that readers can go to a specific prayer, or use other ebook features such as searching for topics, adding notes or prayer lists, or highlighting special passages.
The book was originally written in Greek in the 1960s. In its third edition, Speaking to God was translated into English and released by the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese of America last fall. It has five sections or cycles, which include prayers on general themes and specific topics: (1) asking God to teach us how to pray; (2) talking to God about ourselves and our problems; (3) singing the praises of His glory and majesty; (4) entreating Him on behalf of our brothers and sisters; and (5) addressing the need for a real understanding of the Gospel.
This resource is also available in print through Orthodox Marketplace at www.orthodoxmarketplace.com.
