Read this book if you:
Wonder what is the point of prayer.
Are stale or confused about prayer.
Are curious about what Christians mean when they say "Pray about it." or "Let me pray for you."
If you don't believe in God, then sure, prayer is strange or might be seen as a healthy relaxation technique. But I ask you to read this book with the question in your mind, "What if God is real and there is something to this practice of communicating with him?" That is not a very wide opening for an open minded person, is it? May God bless you in this.
He covers 5 sections in this wonderful resource on prayer: Keeping company with God, unraveling the mysteries, the language of prayer, prayer dilemmas and the practice of prayer. He also has other good resources on prayer which are of benefit. I so appreciate his honesty and what happens when things do not turn out like one has expected.
He also draws insight from many different perspectives and many different ways to pray such as the following Franciscan Benediction;
May God bless you with discomfort
At easy answers, half truths, and superficial relationships
So that you may live deep within your heart.
May God bless you with anger
At injustice, oppression, and exploitation of people,
So that you may work for justice, freedom and peace.
May God bless you with tears
To shed for those who suffer pain, rejection, hunger and war,
So that you may reach out your hand to comfort them and
To turn their pain into joy.
And may God bless you with enough foolishness
To believe that you can make a difference in the world,
So that you can do what others claim cannot be done
To bring justice and kindness to all our children and the poor.
God spoke to me, encouraged me and challenged me to pray more through this book and he will do the same for you.
