Speaking to God is a collection of over seventy prayers written by His Eminence Archbishop Demetrios of America. åÊIn its third edition in Greek, the book has been recently translated into English.
The prayers emphasize the priority of speaking to God in all of the circumstances and conditions of our lives. They reflect the challenges and triumphs, struggles and joy, weaknesses and strengths of our human condition in a manner that affirms the priority of faith and the presence and love of God.
The book has five sections or cycles: (1) asking God to teach us how to pray; (2) talking to God about ourselves and our problems; (3) singing the praises of His glory and majesty; (4) entreating Him on behalf of our brothers and sisters; and (5) addressing the need for a true approach to the Gospel.
