Chosen from the Gospels of Matthew and John, these 365 readings encourage us to remove ourselves from our hectic, day-to-day pace and pray with the natural, comforting rhythms of Jesus' own teachings. By slowing down and opening ourselves to the expansiveness of his words and stories, we become his apprentices. As we observe and listen to our master, we learn to pray regularly and frequently, as he himself prayed.

Through this prayerful apprenticeship, we can discover a new world of companionship with Jesus, a world in which repetitions deepen into intimacies and a long silence is as eloquent as a sonnet.
