Forged amid the horror of Nazi-occupied France during World War II, this book brings you the wisdom of a man who walked in peril of his life every day — and could rely only upon prayer to sustain his faith and hope.

Fr. Joseph-Marie Perrin’s harrowing experiences risking his life to help Jews escape the Nazi death-grip taught him the importance of adoration and prayer: from the power of hasty prayers whispered as danger approached to the consolation of quiet adoration once the threat passed.

In this book he sets out for you what he learned: how to

understand your relationship with God and make prayer a priority; how to overcome difficulties in prayer; the elements of perfect prayer and how to bring them into your own prayer life; what you can learn from the "Our Father" that will transform all your prayers; how to adore God in spirit and in truth and to say yes to all that He asks of you; how to answer Christ’s call to watch with Him; the best way to ask God for what you need; and much more.

Fr. Perrin even explains how you can make your life into a continuous prayer, meeting God in all that you do and in all that you face each day. He details simple ways that you can come to accept God’s will in all things, seeing Him in your neighbor and letting His love motivate all that you do.

Prayer and adoration are fundamental duties of every Christian, and are all the more crucial today. Fr. Perrin will help you give them the attention they deserve so that you can make God truly the center of your life.
