Why do things seem to be falling apart at every level of our lives? Could it be because we have sent God back to the heavens, far, far away? Could it be because we don't want to let God be involved in our everyday affairs? Could it be because we want to create God in our own image or because we just want to cancel God from our thoughts, feelings, laws, or behaviors and lifestyles? We may have tried multiple possible ways to find solutions for the chaos we are in, but to no avail. Can we try one more thing—the living prayer?

How far from reality is to think that prayer is "useless" and a "waste of time," when, in fact, prayer allows the things that fell apart to come together again. Prayer aligns us to our fundamental purpose which gives meaning to our lives. Prayer transforms our conscious and unconscious—personal and collective. Prayer transforms the ordinary into extraordinary.

This book is an invitation to the Pascalian room—"All of humanity's problems stem from man's inability to sit quietly in a room alone"—where "Everything begins in mysticism and ends in politics," as Charles Peguy put it. Prayer makes all the difference in the world, indeed.
