2 of 2 people found the following review helpful By John M. Ford TOP 1000 REVIEWER on August 21, 2011
Format: Paperback
This edited volume contains seventeen short articles and three poems about prayer. They are written from the perspective of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints and are most accessible to readers familiar with that tradition. Many have previously appeared in reports of the Church's annual conference or in the Ensign magazine.

N. Eldon Tanner introduces the collection with two thoughts. First, that we will live our lives with greater care if we remember that we will be accountable to our Father in heaven. The second is that "Our Father in heaven knows our needs better than we. He knows what is for our good and the things we need to overcome in order to further our development and progression. We must learn to accept his will in all things, with the faith and assurance that in the end everything he does for us will redound to our good."

Three of the more thought-provoking articles are:

Marion D. Hanks' "Preparation for Prayer" reviews different activities that ready the heart, mind, and spirit for meaningful prayer. He reviews examples from the lives of Enos, Nephi, Oliver Cowdery and Moroni. Hanks reviews a number of activities, ranging from thoughtfully thinking through our problems and their potential solutions to contemplating the beauty of the natural world.

Neal A. Maxwell's "What Should We Pray For?" explores the range of topics possible in the conversation of prayer. He emphasizes the importance of being in tune with the Spirit so that we can be inspired to pray for those things we need most. We are reminded of the importance and purposes of praying for the welfare of others.

Hartman Rector, Jr.'s "Our Prayers in Public" discusses the responsibilities of praying on behalf of others in a group setting.

Format: Hardcover
I enjoyed all the talks in this book. They cover many subjects related to prayer; such as the words we use to pray, family prayer, the power of prayer, and great people who have prayed. Many of the talks contained quotes I have heard people say before but I had not read where they came from. I enjoyed the thoughts and insights in this book. The book also contains a contents page and index to help you look for specific topics.

Format: Paperback
I purchased this book a couple of years ago at a bookstore that I worked at. It is an absolutely wonderful book on this subject "Prayer". It is a must for those of you who want to be more in tune with our Father in Heaven. The authors are all inspired men and in tune with Jesus Christ and Heavenly Father. The contents will help the reader also become more in tune with our Heavenly Father and the importance of prayer and why communicating with our Father in Heaven is something that He wants us to do.
