Why Everybody Can Have Their Own Kind of Prayer Life

In the foreword to his book A Manual of Prayers and Other Christian Devotions, Bishop Challoner advises that the reader should be:

“…. taking that which serves most for his own devotion, and leaving the rest to others, who perhaps may be more moved by that which seems dry and insipid to him.

For as several bodies are not equally pleased by the same [foods], so neither is the same spiritual food equally agreeable or beneficial to different souls. And it is for this reason that the most bountiful and provident Hand of Almighty God has appointed so great a variety of nourishment for both.”
