From the Back Cover
Often we view prayer as an activity reserved for a certain time, in a certain place, offered in a specific way. But Scripture encourages us to pray continually. This exhortation is an opportunity for prayer to permeate every aspect of our lives--when we're alone or in a crowd, when it's quiet and when it's chaotic, when we feel like it and when we don't.
Praying with Eyes Wide Open shows us how to make continuous prayer a natural part of our lives rather than something on our daily spiritual checklist. It helps us encounter God in new ways as we learn to
- open our eyes to see his presence and the world around us
- open our ears to hear his voice
- open our hearts to experience freedom and power as we pray
- and open our lives as we pray for and with others
Do you want a richer, more transformative prayer life? This fresh take on conversing with your Creator is just what you need.
"Wise guidance for the prayer-filled life."--John Ortberg, senior pastor of Menlo Church; author of All the Places to Go
"If you want to draw closer to God, put this book on the top of your list."--Randy Frazee, senior minister of Oak Hills Church; author of What Happens after You Die
"My new go-to book when talking to anyone about prayer."--Gary Thomas, author of Sacred Marriage
