One of my pledges for 2009- and one that I have thankfully kept- is to deepen my prayer life. The little prayer book, Prayers for Catholic Men from The Catholic Company, has played a big role in helping me follow through on my pledge.
I say a "little book" because it is conveniently sized to fit in a pocket- there is no excuse for not always having this book close by.
And while small, the book is loaded with prayers for every situation:
- For every day
- For work
- For personal strength
- For family
- For sexual purity
- For in death
Also included are traditional Catholic prayers such as the Rosary, the Angelus, the Act of Contrition, Prayer to St. Michael the Archangel, and more.
I highly recommend keeping this book with you- you'll find strength and comfort and a closer relationship with the Lord.
