I know this book is a favorite for many of us, so it had to be included in this #31 Days of Books series!

Excerpt from The Practice of the Presence of God
Ah! knew we but the want we have of the grace and assistance of God, we would never lose sight of Him, no, not for a moment.
Believe me. Immediately make a holy and firm resolution never more to forget Him. Resolve to spend the rest of your days in His sacred presence, deprived of all consolations for the love of Him if He thinks fit.
Set heartily about this work, and if you do it sincerely, be assured that you will soon find the effects of it.
. . . Do not forget Him but think on Him often. Adore Him continually. Live and die with Him. This is the glorious work of a Christian; in a word, this is our profession. If we do not know it, we must learn it.
. . . Let all our efforts be to know God. The more one knows Him, the greater one desires to know Him.
– Brother Lawrence
