Meditating the Gospels

"The apostles' request to Christ: 'Lord, teach us to pray!' is itself one of the most human of prayers. I doubt that anyone is ever completely satisfied with his or her prayer life or convinced that it could not be improved. For years I have been reading about the Bible as the source and sustenance of mental prayer. But I have not been able to find completely satisfactory selections of the Bible so prayed. The following meditations (if they may be called such) are therefore the result of a search. Surely they are very personal, as private prayer must be. But if they give others the idea to create their own, they will serve a good purpose." [from the Preface]
