Editorial Reviews

Review

'Walter Wangerin knows the simplicity of prayer weaving in and out of the willing and unwilling events of our lives. Prayer is going on -- and Walter helps us see it, understand it, and use the gifts of God to us to bring our whole life into harmony with it.' -- Dallas Willard

From the Publisher

Prayer was meant to be as natural as breathing--our response to need, frustration, joy, and all the events and encounters of our lives. But many of us feel our prayer life is a mere shadow of the wholeness and fullness we were meant to experience. Perhaps it's because we don't understand that prayer is about talking with God, not just to him. Not just sharing our hearts with him, but listening as he opens his heart to us. Award-winning author Walter Wangerin gracefully explores the dynamics of prayer, of speaking, of listening, of waiting, of hearing God's voice. Whole Prayer helps us reach toward God and learn to receive from God, knowing that we are held and encircled by the presence of a loving Heavenly Father. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Format: Hardcover
Everything in Whole Prayer made so much sense. Only a month after I've read it, I find myself advising my friends in their prayer lives using Wally's words. Prayer is communication between us and God, it is not just asking God for something and expecting him to fulfill our wishes. I originally checked Whole Prayer out of the library, I can't wait to buy it and read it again.
I think my favorite part was being able to "see" what Wally was describing in the first chapter about Alaska. His descriptive style amazes me. I felt as if I was experiencing Alaska for the first time along with him and Thanne.

I purchased this book knowing nothing about the author, but because the title intrigued me. It has challenged me in my walk with God to devote more time to the act of prayer. Especially helpful/educational was the first part of the book where you are encouraged to LISTEN to God when you pray, not just simply rattle off a list of requests. The focus of the book is to challenge the reader to know God through prayer, and to develop that relationship through prayer. It has done that to me, and I would encourage others to read, think, and do the same.

This book really helped me understand that prayer is about talking with God, not just to him. Not just sharing our hearts with him, but listening as he opens his heart to us.

This is certainly the best book I've read on the subject of prayer. Wangerin provides a wonderful path to enhancing one's relationship with God, and improving communication with Him. To say he is a gifted writer is an understatement. This is a life changing writing with profound examples from Wangerin's own life. I am so grateful to have read it.
