Summary

The Practice of the Presence of God has inspired people for generations. Brother Lawrence, also known as Nicholas Herman, was a devout French Carmelite friar of the 17th-century who’s aim in life was to simply love God with all his being and cultivate a sensitivity to the presence of God. The following audiobook is a compilation of conversations and letters by Brother Lawrence giving us insight into his personal relationship with God and his singular focus on union with the divine. The text was written over 300 years ago and later translated into English. Though some of the language may be dated, the heart of his message shines through with clarity, that the sensitivity to the presence of God in our lives and our love for Him is, and ought to be, our highest priority. Everything is second to love.

Through his teachings, we learn how we ourselves can grow and mature in conversing with God on a daily basis. The impact of this simple, yet powerful audiobook can no doubt be life transforming. I hope that as you listen you find encouragement in the power and simplicity of prayer. May you be blessed in your pursuit of God and be transformed by the freedom we have in Christ to come directly to the Father in conversation and friendship.

Awesome

Loved it. I wished the book for this version was available and the Maxim's were included. I still loved it. Another title for this book is How to Walk it Out God's Way. or Doing it God's Way.

Simple & Profound

This is such a short book, easy to understand and simple to apply occasionally. Making it a lifestyle might be more difficult. Wilsee.

wow

do much trust in YHVH here. so many truths. I hope many of you glean as much from this book as possible. the reader makes this book something i can work, and even sleep too. it has som seriously LIFE CHANGING principles in this book, but they take dedication for fruit to become visible. let us all persist in relationship with YHVH just as Brother Lawrence does even now in Eternity.
