This little book, A Short and Easy Method or Prayer, was written for a few individuals who wanted to love God with their whole hearts by Madame Guyon, a celebrated French mystical writer of the Quietist school. This book gives simple instructions in contemplative prayer, prayer without words or distinct ideas. It also encourages readers to accept all things as from God's hand. At the time of printing, which was a rather stormy era in France religious history, the work resulted in Madame Guyon being both attacked and defended by some of the most brilliant writers of her day, even resulting in her imprisonment for a time. The work continues to attract strong defenders and critics, but many find in it a fruitful way to seek God.

Author Bio: Jeanne-Marie Bouvier de la Motte-Guyon

Jeanne-Marie Bouvier de la Motte-Guyon (1648–1717) wrote from the depth of her own spiritual experiences. Growing up in France during the decadent times of Louis XIV, she was devout at an early age but was then caught up in the worldliness around her. After an arranged marriage at age fifteen, she became increasingly interested in spiritual things. For the rest of her life, though, she sought God diligently, taught others, and wrote books on Christian devotion. These books have become Christian classics. She paid a heavy price for her views and her writings, including persecution and imprisonment throughout her life.
