Praying With The Grain ~ A book review.



Praying with the Grain by Pablo Martinez is about How your personality affects the way you pray.  While I have always been interested in psychology and why we do the things we do, I had never really thought about it affecting the way we pray.  


This book is divided into 2 parts.

Part 1: The Psychology of Prayer

Chapter 1: Different Prayers for Different People

This chapter will help you answer many questions such as:

  • Why do I find it difficult to pray?
  • Why do I feel so hypocritical when I pray?
  • And more

Chapter 2: Overcoming Difficulties

This chapter talks about Emotional Problems and Prayer

Chapter 3: The Therapeutic Value of Prayer

This chapter goes into Prayer- A Love Relationship

Questions and Answers

Which is full of some of the most frequently asked questions about prayer.

Part 2: The Apologetics of Prayer

Chapter 4: Prayer: Psychological Illusion

A psychiatrist’s viewpoint on prayer

Chapter 5: Are All Prayers Alike?

Christian Prayer and Eastern Meditation


A chapter by chapter of sited references.

The book really covers how our personality affects the way we pray and is a very insightful.  It really helps you understand the type of person you are; introvert, extrovert, thinker, feeler, etc. and how to understand and work with your own spiritual path.

This book was quite the interesting read and I do suggest it.
