Just taught a class of 12 and they raved about it!

I just hope this book gets republished in the future so that it is formatted better and the language is changed - it makes me feel like it was written in the 1950's.

I loved the book - the guidance on using Scripture to craft prayer in time-honored formats like collects and laments was truly excellent.

Format: Paperback
This book is highly formal, using old fashioned language and concepts. I guess if you want a highly structured, highly formal "how to" book then this book is for you. If you are more of a free spirit who says what you are moved by the Holy Spirit to say when you pray, then you may feel constrained by this book. I did. It made me feel like all the prayers I have ever said before have been unworthy, it almost made me feel put down. Plus, the author must live in a bubble of "high etiquette" because he speaks as if life can always be "planned." For example, when discussing how to offer prayer before a meal, he says it is proper if you are asked in advance so that you are prepared to offer prayer. In today's world, who gets a written invitation to offer pray before a meal, even when it's a meal that is held in public with a large group of people? I felt like the life this author is coming from and my life couldn't be more different. I was given this book to read in advance of a course that I need to take. The publisher also did a terrible job with the way the pages are laid out. Imagine an 8.5" x 11" sheet of paper, with margins narrowed to fit as many words as possible on a single spaced sheet of paper. The font used is Times New Roman 11 (my guess), no spacing between lines, and narrow margins. It was a terrible experience for me to read this book. The headings where the Bible verses are listed are printed in some type of ultra "fancy" font. It is a lightweight font and it's barely readable. I just hope this book gets republished in the future so that it is formatted better and the language is changed - it makes me feel like it was written in the 1950's. The copyright says 2001. This book would be much more effective if it was the language was modernized, the techniques were updated, and if the layout was more appealing. I will be on the hunt for a different book that is more modern and is written in the context of life that is not lived in high society.

More complicated than I thought. Was looking for more simple ways to pray less formal. Other than that the book was okay

This book worked great for our 10 hour course on leading prayer. It's difficult to do by yourself, but worked well in a classroom setting. I'll never hear or write a prayer, again, without remembering the words of wisdom I learned in this book. It's not right for everyone, but worked well for me.

Immediately helped with my prayers. I've only read a couple of the chapters and plan to spend more time on it in the weeks ahead.

I purchased this because it was the required text for the prayer course in United Methodism for lay speakers. I found it meets the general concept of prayer, but my personal beliefs are more "liberal/progressive." So, for me, it merely meets the requirements.
