Traditional prayer, often considered rote, tends to be neglected by people who claim to take their faith seriously. In The Words We Pray, author Amy Welborn offers an insightful exploration into 18 traditional prayers and the vital spiritual role each one can play.

This enchanting prayer book includes the history and traditional use of each prayer as well as personal anecdotes to show why the body of Catholic traditional prayers is “a treasure worth rediscovering.” From the Psalms to traditional Marian prayers to the Lord’s Prayer to Amen, the prayers explored in The Words We Pray are gifts from the past that can greatly benefit our spiritual life today.
