While serving in the Thirty Years’ War in central Europe during the 1600s, Nicholas Herman suffered a severe wound that crippled him for life. But as he remembered how God restored leaves to barren trees from one season to another, he found hope that God would also restore him. Eventually, he moved to Paris and joined the Discalced Carmelite Priory, where he was given the religious name of “Brother Lawrence.”
Throughout his life, Brother Lawrence experienced many challenges, but along the way he recognized that God was with him . . . and he took full advantage of being in the Lord’s presence. Instead of complaining about his situations, he chose to focus his heart and mind on thoughts of God’s love, majesty, and grace. Brother Lawrence spent time with God in an intimate way that allowed him to experience the fullness of joy and peace.
This special edition of the classic book The Practice of the Presence of God offers fresh perspectives on knowing and loving God through the faith journey of Brother Lawrence. In addition to maintaining the classic text, this modern version also includes a 40-day devotional to guide you through the content.
From the stories of Brother Lawrence’s struggles, the Scriptures that inspired him, and the humble words of wisdom he spoke, you’ll see the benefits of constant engagement with the Lord. Open this book and discover how you can faithfully live in God’s presence, grow deeper in your love for Him, and experience His joy and peace through every season of life.
