Product Description

Best-selling author Richard Foster offers a warm, compelling, and sensitive primer on prayer, helping you to understand, experience, and practice it in its many forms. He clarifies the prayer process, answers common misconceptions, and shows the way into prayers of contemplation, healing, blessing, forgiveness, and rest.

Coming to prayer is like coming home, Foster says. "Nothing feels more right, more like what we are created to be and to do. Yet at the same time we are confronted with great mysteries. Who hasn't struggled with the puzzle of unanswered prayer? Who hasn't wondered how a finite person can commune with the infinite Creator of the universe? ... We do our best, of course, to answer these knotty questions but when all is said and done, there is a sense in which these mysteries remain unanswered and unanswerable ... At such times we must learn to become comfortable with the mystery."

Foster shows how prayer can move you inward into personal transformation, upward toward intimacy with God, and outward to minister to others. He leads you beyond questions to a deeper understanding and practice of prayer, bringing you closer to God, to yourself, and to your community.

Publisher's Description

Best-selling author Richard J. Foster offers a warm, compelling, and sensitive primer on prayer, helping us to understand, experience, and practice it in its many forms-from the simple prayer of beginning again to unceasing prayer. He clarifies the prayer process, answers common misconceptions, and shows the way into prayers of contemplation, healing, blessing, forgiveness, and rest.

Coming to prayer is like coming home, Foster says. "Nothing feels more right, more like what we are created to be and to do. Yet at the same time we are confronted with great mysteries. Who hasn't struggled with the puzzle of unanswered prayer? Who hasn't wondered how a finite person can commune with the infinite Creator of the universe? Who hasn't questioned whether prayer isn't merely psychological manipulation after all? We do our best, of course, to answer these knotty questions but when all is said and done, there is a sense in which these mysteries remain unanswered and unanswerable . . . At such times we must learn to become comfortable with the mystery."

Foster shows how prayer can move us inward into personal transformation, upward toward intimacy with God, and outward to minister to others. He leads us beyond questions to a deeper understanding and practice of prayer, bringing us closer to God, to ourselves, and to our community.

Editorial Reviews

“This book is a rare gift... both a guide to prayer and an answer to one.”
“This book has helped me immensely in my struggles for spiritual vitality and depth.”
“A master teaching on the Master Subject.”
“As one fairly fluent with words, I am hard-pressed to express the impact of this timeless classic on my life. Richard Foster’s book is invaluable now, but not quite as invaluable as it will be a hundred years from now.”
“...takes the mystery out of prayer and returns it to the ordinary rhythmsof life”
“Magnificent! ... carried us into communion with Christians of every century and denomination.”
“You will not find a better guide. This is a landmark book.”

    This book offers some good information. It was a little confusion using catholic terminology/history because I'm unfamiliar with that denomination. One of the books you want to keep reading despite confusion because you are certain it will offer more/some beneficial information at end, or leading up to it. Probably will use it as a reference book if needed.

    This is an excellent review on the various types of prayer and their applications in our life. Prayer is such a powerful force in our spiritual lives as we seek to enhance our relationships with the triune God, family, friends and worldly neighbors. Describing prayers that lead us inward, upward and outward, the author has done an courageous job of warming our hearts through our search for peace.

    I haven't finished the book but so far - awesome! This is one of those books to keep in your library for future reference. I had originally borrowed it from a friend but I kept wanting to write little notes in the margins so I had to get it for myself. It is loaded with thought provoking truths and is easy to read and understand. I hightly recommend this book to anyone searching for a good book on prayer. It will not disappoint.

    This is my second time purchasing a copy of this book. I often thought that there were many ways and many reasons to pray and this author confirmed it. The book was beautifully written and I did find myself moving toward greater intimacy with God as I read through the chapters. I have recommended this book to many others. Thank you.
