Publisher's Description

For the past twenty years Too Busy Not to Pray has stood as a classic on prayer, helping Christians all over the world slow down to draw near to God. During those years, the world certainly hasn't slowed down. If anything, the pace, intensity and number of distractions have only increased. Brokenness and pain seem to have increased as well, with news of civil war, poverty, broken families and sex-trafficking touching us daily. The urgent need for prayer is clear, but busyness still keeps many of us from finding time to pray. Two truths haven't changed in twenty years: God is the same powerful, just, holy God he's always been; and true prayer--prayer that changes us and allows us to participate in God's work in the world--can't happen on the fly. So Bill Hybels once again offers us his practical, time-tested ideas on slowing down to pray. Revised throughout and including a new introduction and new chapter on prayer and compassion for the world, this twentieth-anniversary edition of Too Busy Not to Pray calls both young and old to make prayer a priority, and broadens our vision for what our eternal, powerful God does when his people slow down to pray.

Editorial Reviews

"The most helpful book on Prayer that I have read."
"You cannot read this book without praying more, and praying better. It is thoughtful, clear, compelling and challenging--Bill at his best!"

    Our small group recently went through the book and the DVD study series "Prayer Together" (based on this book). Everyone in the group discovered at least one aspect of their prayer life that could use fine-tuning, and the suggestions in the study and book were very helpful.

    I have a copy of the original book by the same title. The updated stories and the addition of the final chapter in this version give the book a fresh feel. If your group is going to read the book along with doing the "Prayer Together" study, I would recommend purchasing the updated version of the book, since the chapter divisions have been changed from the original, and the reading assignments are based on the 2008 revision.

    This is the second time our bible study group had use "Too Busy Not to Pray". This topic is relevant to our spiritual growth. It is well written, easy to read and comprehend and full of great material.
    I Also purchased and like the DVD and think it adds to our study. Not so sure about the Study Guide. I think it is kind of expensive when added to the purchase of the book. Does not contain additional information, just helps guide the discussion. I think you can effectivly do this using the questions for discussion already printed in the back of the primary book.

    I read this book 20 years ago. Our pastor recently mentioned it in his series on PRAYER. I re-read it and ordered a copy to pass along to others. Lots of practical helps as well as challenges to strengthen my own prayer life.
